DAY ONE NOVENA PRAYER
Day One Audio
ACT OF CONTRITION
My Lord Jesus Christ, true God and true man, my father and Redeemer, behold at Thy feet a poor sinner who has so grievously afflicted Thy loving Heart. O lovable Jesus, how could I have offended thee and filled with bitterness that Heart that loves me so and that has spared no effort to attain my love? How great has been my ingratitude! But, O my saviour, be consoled, be consoled, I say to thee; now I find myself repentant, such grief I feel for the afflictions I have caused thee, that I would like to die of poor sorrow and contrition. O my Jesus! Who could have made me weep for sin as Thou hast wept for them in Thy mortal life! My soul is oppressed for having offended Thee. Eternal Father, in satisfaction for my offences, I offer Thee the affliction and sorrow the Heart of Thy Divine Son has felt for them. And Thou, O Loving Jesus! Give me such a horror for sin that it may make me avoid even the most trifling of faults from now on. Depart from my Heart, earthly affections; I do not want to love anything now but my most bountiful Redeemer. O my Jesus, help me, strengthen me, and pardon me.
My Mother of Perpetual Help, intercede for me and obtain for me the pardon of my sins.
PREPARATORY PRAYER(To be said everyday)
O Most Blessed Virgin Mary! Whom to inspire us with boundless confidence has been pleased to take the sweet name of Mother of Perpetual Help; I implore Thee to come to my aid always and everywhere, in my temptations, after my falls, in my difficulties, in all the miseries of life, and above all, at the hour of my death. Give me, O loving Mother, the desire, nay more, the habit always to have recourse to Thee, for I feel assured that if I am faithful in invoking Thee, Thou will be faithful in coming to my assistance. Obtain for me, then, this grace of graces, the grace to pray to Thee without ceasing and with childlike trust, that, by means of my constant plea, I may ensure Thy Perpetual Help and final perseverance. Bless me, O tender and solicitous Mother, pray for me now and at the hour of my death. Amen
FIRST DAY MEDITATIONThe Title Our Lady of Perpetual Help
Among the numerous titles under which Christian piety is pleased to invoke the Blessed Virgin, there are few that are as likely to lift our hearts and fill them with unlimited confidence as the sweet name of Mother of Perpetual Help, a name that pleases Her so.
To convince you of this: consider, on the one hand, what the life of man on earth is, and on the other hand, what the name of Our Lady of Perpetual Help means.
Truthfully, what is life but a chain of miseries, dangers, afflictions and labours? In the temporal order, who is exempt from illness or from poverty? Who is there who does not have to weep? In the spiritual order, who knows how, on every occasion, to be on guard against the great misfortune of sin, against the snares of lukewarmness, against the coaxing of temptations? Who does not weaken from time to time in the service of God, in the practice of virtue, and who does not tire at times in the path of good? Finally, what Christian does not tremble at the thought of the decisive and difficult moment of death, of the purifying fire of purgatory? In view of such miseries and necessities, the soul, overwhelmed, feels itself weakening and would like to burst into tears. But upon hearing the sweet name of Mother of Perpetual Help, it becomes serene; it takes courage and continues joyfully on its path toward eternity. Why? Because it then feels that its lamentations are not lost in a desert but that they find a gracious echo in the Heart of a Mother who desires and can help it. In truth, the Virgin of Perpetual Help means a remedy for all the evils that afflict us - a remedy not just for a day but perpetual, from the cradle to Heaven, help in everything and help at all times. Perpetual Help means consolation in afflictions, poverty, illness, and labour; strength to give up sin, whether mortal or venial, and not to fall into it again. Perpetual Help means fidelity in the service of the lord and of the virgin Herself, and therefore, final perseverance. Perpetual Help means courage in the practice of virtue; special protection in the terrible hour of death; prompt and efficacious relief in the dreadful prison where just souls, still indebted to Divine justice, suffer before entering the heavenly homeland. Perpetual Help means: that even when circumstances or situations occur where everything seems hopeless, there is still one certain recourse: the Protection of the Blessed Virgin.
Meditate and ask for what you wish to obtain from Our Lady of Perpetual Help.
JOYSAT THE END OF EACH PARAGRAPH SAY
"Come hasten to assist me, O Mother sweet and kind!"
Thou art Perpetual Help benign;
Hear, O Virgin pure,
Stained by guilt and sin
Free the careless soul
Wretched in this vale
If my virtue wanes
To Thy faithful child
Free my fickle heart
In the final clash
In purgatory's fire,
Grant me, Mother dear,
Come hasten to assist me
O Mother of Perpetual help, may your name never depart from my lips nor forsake my heart.
A visit to the image of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, reciting ten Hail Marys and commending to Her all your necessities and those of your family.
O Mother of Perpetual Help! For the ingratitude with which, until now, I have repaid Thy mercies and those of God, I deserve, as just punishment, Thy depriving me of Thy favours; but, O my sweet Mother, no matter how great my ingratitude is, Thy kindness is even greater. Do not disdain, therefore, to help a poor sinner who confides in Thee! Thy heart overflows with charity for all and never has one heard it said that any unfortunate soul had left Thy feet without having his tears dried. Do not forget my miseries; intercede for me before the God of goodness, Who refuses Thee nothing and prove once more that Thou art worthy of the sweet name of Perpetual Help.
During the last years of the 15th century, when the Turks were afflicting the Christians on the isle of Crete with bloody persecutions, a pious merchant was obliged to abandon his native soil forever and seek asylum under the skies of Italy.
The vessel that conveyed him had scarcely reached the high seas when it was lashed by a violent tempest, and in a few moments, the hurricane tore off its sails, and the raging waves destroyed its rudder. The crew, upon seeing their ship lost and made a plaything by the waves, terrified and struck with fear, awaited the death that would give the depths of the ocean for their tomb.
In the midst of that frightful scene, only the merchant of Crete appeared to be serene. There was courage in his words, and confidence glowed in his eyes. And as the fury increased, the pious traveller ran to the ship's interior, found his luggage, and, uttering sighs of hope, returned to the deck carrying in his hand the image of Our Lady of Perpetual Help.
"Look," he exclaimed, addressing the afflicted crew: "Behold the star of the sea; behold the beacon of navigators. Let us invoke Her in our afflictions. She will save us." Upon saying these words, the merchant lifted the precious image before the terrified crew members, who grouped themselves on their knees around his feet.
"Petitions rise from the earth, and prodigies descend from heaven", according to Saint Augustine.
And sure enough: the travellers had hardly invoked Mary with that powerful cry of faith when the hurricane stopped the course of its winds, and the great ocean calmed its waves. The sun shore in the skies, and the ship, rocked by the gentle breeze, went on to drop its anchors on the beautiful shores of Italy.
This was the first wonder about the miraculous image of Our Lady of Perpetual Help manifested before the face of Christianity. She wanted to commence Her favours in a vanquished tempest, to teach us that, in all the torments of life, no matter how lost we feel ourselves to be, She will always be our life, our sweetness and our hope. Amen
May Our Lady Of Perpetual Help be loved, praised, invoked and eternally blessed! May she be my hope, my love, my Mother, My refuge and my life. Amen.

I want to thank our Lady of perpetual help for listening to me and interceding on my behalf. I did this novena last month (April) and one of the things I asked for was granted and I believe the rest will also come through. Thank you my mother for helping me.
I thank our Lady of perpetual help for all she has done in my life especially when I needed her intercession the most. I called upon Her when I was about to take my jamb examination and to the glory of her name, I passed in flying colours.
I passed my exams through the intercession of my mother of PERPETUAL HELP, she came through for me. On the 6th day of the novena, she helped me escape destruction in the dream. All I could see was a mighty woman telling those who tried to hurt me "Don't touch her, she's my daughter and any one who tries it has me to contend with.
I was saved and woke up. On the day after the prayer, my result came out beautiful.
I just don't know where to start from, because am speechless! This my mama too dey pamper me😫😫❤️ I was supposed to write my jamb examination on the 25th of March 2023. Everything about this my exam was just problem. The centre had two different addresses, this was how the whole confusion started. When I finally saw the school where I was to write my exam, on the day of the exam I had alot of challenges. Imagine writing an exam and your system goes off and the invigilators said that nothing can be done! So frustrating I know that. Those that had the same issues waited until we were all addressed. The person in charge told us to go home and do another print out, that we will be given a centre to write our exams again. I went home checked and checked! But it was still the same thing, then I started this Novena today telling Mama that I want my exam to be today or tomorrow. To the Glory of GOD they have changed it and am writing my exams Today. May Her Perpetual help come to everyone in need of Her help. Amen I know that she will also grant me success in my exams today.🙏🙇🏼♀️❤️ Our sweet Mother of Perpetual help! Pray for us.🙏❤️
After finding out I was pregnant, I become devastated. I was planning to do gender tracking cause I have 2 female children already, but I embarked on our lady's novena and pleaded to her to grant my heart desire. After nine months, she didn't disappoint me. I have a baby boy now!

I was diagnosed of a very terrible bone infection through an X-ray result, but instead of having that as the real report of my medical condition, Mother Mary through her most efficacious intercession, directed the medical doctor to the very serious medical condition that has kept me in pains for months (Post Traumatic Arthritis). She in her love towards me, arrested the worsening of the medical condition and helped me in the swift medical response to my painful medical situation.
If not for Mother Mary, I would have lost the effective function of my left foot. O Mother Mary, Mother of Perpetual Help, you're truly my love, my Mother, my hope, my refuge and my life. Thank you Mother Mary, Mother of Perpetual Help.
My daughter was booked for a kidney surgery and the hospital kept on posting us and prolonging the time of her surgery. This went on for months. They finally embarked on a strike So I decided to invoke my mother of Perpetual Help to either give us funds to have the surgery privately or let the hospital’s strike be called off so we have the surgery. The strike was called off, but the hospital still didn’t do it and God provided us with the millions we needed to take her to a private hospital. She had the surgery and came out successfully. May God be praised forever. Thank you mama🙏

Ave Maria! Ave Maria! Ave Maria! I started Novena to our Mother of perpetual help on 01/05/20 in the middle of terrible affliction which even prevented me from sleeping day and night. The doctor had to administer sleeping pills to even help with some sleep. As the pills finished on the 5th day of the novena the problem persisted. On the 8th day of the novena Mother of perpetual help showed up & through her powerful intercession God took away the affliction completely, restored me to health of mind and body and gives his beloveth sleep. I promised to testify and I am doing it to the glory of God. Glory be to Jesus, honour be to Mary!

I applied for change of degree in the university, as things went, I had no hope because my old department didn't release me, but after taking the novena, there came a ray of hope, I got released from my department, but in the course, the form sent to the department to accept me got misplaced, and I was not accepted to the new one, thereby released from the old one and not accepted into the new one, I took the novena a second time and the form was found, now I changed to the department of my choice, which was obviously only a miracle, I had no hope, nothing could be done, but our mother did something for me.

MY MOTHER so loving and kind, always coming through her devotees. Ive always known about the Novena to Our Mother of Perpetual Help but I never prayed it. I submitted myself to her will when I was in a serious financial snag. My little girl missed an entire term because of this. It broke my heart and I went to her and I prayed the Novena and on the 4th day I think I got a call for a project. I didn't even stress for and got paid in full before even starting the project. I was ecstatic i broke down in tears and started praising her name. My girl is in school now with her mates. I vouched never to stray from her. She will always be MY MOTHER. I will forever consecrate to HER my whole being, my life and home without reserve.
Thanking our Mother of Perpetual help for her constant intercession, i have faith and believe that Mother Mary will answer all my prayers. Amen🙏🙏🙏

I am a medic, and so I had this patient who was bleeding. She had lost so much blood that she was in shock. We needed an access into her veins so we could give her blood, but her veins were mostly collapsed. I tried twice to secure an access, I failed. I left and called another colleague who also tried and couldn't get access. Then, I decided to try again and this time, I prayed silently, to our lady of perpetual help for assistance, as I advanced the cannula. And instantly, without stress, I secured a wide access with which we were able to deliver blood to this patient who could have easily bled to death in our very presence. May the virgin of Perpetual Help be loved, praised, invoked and eternally blessed! May she be our hope in our hopelessness! Amen.
I am a devotee of our lady. I asked for direction on my decision pertaining to my state of life. Am at the stage to get married and I wanted to know if it is God's will that I should accept the proposal before me.Before embarking on the novena which ended today, I was confused about my decision and indecision. During the fourth day of my novena, I was encouraged to pray about my decision by my confessor. He said say a novena prayer to our lady of perpetual help or to Sy Jude. Already I had embark on the novena to our lady of perpetual help. I started praying about my decision. On the midnight of the seventh day, I was restless, couldn't sleep, I had a dream that what I had was been taken away from me. I shouted no and woke up. I realised then what our lady was telling. And from that day forward my decision to be with the person has not changed and I started to realise certain things that I have not taken not of before in the person. This person in question is not a catholic but respect the fact that I request the intercession of our lady. Because I believe that our lady brought us together and will continue to sustain our relationship till the end. We are in the process of getting married. Continue to intercede for me and my future husband. Thank you.

My friend who is doing her master degree needed accommodation in the school hostel in University of Lagos Nigeria because she transports her self to school everyday with not less than #1300 everyday. Initially the school portal said that there's no more accommodation. I told her not to panic that holy mother of perpetual help will do it for us. We started the novena together though we are not residing in the same state, As God may have it, a professor took the case up and directed her to the person in charge of the hostel with a letter that she should provide an accommodation for her, On the 3rd day of the novena I asked her have you checked the accommodation portal she said yes, "I checked it but it's still saying the same thing, you can check by yourself since you have my details" then on the early hours of the sixth day I was checked it, Lo and behold, 'You have been assigned 1 space in Henry Carr Hall B, 022, follow the link and complete the process to claim it before 27th of June", immediately I called her she did not pick because it was around 2am midnight, I sent her a text. Immediately she woke up she called back and said she's confirmed it and we have not stopped thanking Holy mama for what she did for us oo. Our mother of perpetual help Pray for us.

She was seriously in labour but the baby could not come out, the doctor declared emergency operation that the baby is already dying inside the womb. I called on our mother of perpetual help and she interceded for her, she was almost dead but God through the intercession of our Mother, granted her a successful operation of both child delivery and fibroid. May your name be praised for forever, Our Mother of perpetual help 🙏
Mother of perpetual help has come through for me and my family, on the 1st of July 2022, I received a message from the schools of nursing I wrote their entrance exams, thank u mother of perpetual help and my God

I pray for the healing to be permanent in Jesus name amen. May our Lady of Perpetual help be praised now and forever. Amen.

I just concluded my novena to our Lady of Perpetual Help, praying for open doors and against the spirit of death- a dreadful feelings that torment me at midnight, as recommended by a priest. Even though I missed the 7th day and I had to pray it together on the 8th day, I’ve started seeing changes in my situation in the past few hours. I look forward to her for total answer and I thank our lady for so quick a reply.

I am overwhelmed with joy for what Our Lady of Perpetual help did for me. I have been working on my thesis for a long time with the accord of my supervisors. Just when they had asked us to submit, my co-supervisor found my work confusing. I was so frustrated and devastated because my main supervisor, whose opinion of the work was final, had not had time to go through the work for months. The deadline for submission was drawing close and I did not know what to do. In desperation, I decided to begin a novena, I wasn't sure of which novena to do, so I did a search and came across the novena of Our Lady of Perpetual Help. I started it immediately asking her to direct me in my thesis and that my main supervisor should find time to read my work and give a positive feedback. On the sixth day I received a mail from my main supervisor who after reading the work did corrections and confirmed it as very good. My brain got blank for a while before I started singing with joy. That same day in the evening, my daughter age 5, suddenly burst out singing, Mama Maria full of grace, Mama Maria full of grace....... I joined her in her singing with tears rolling down my cheeks. I am not done with my thesis yet but I am confident that our Lady of Perpetual help will see me through!
At this point, I'm barely 4 days into the novena. I used to be a devotee in the university but for some reason, found myself slacking. I got a call from my grandma on a Saturday morning to start the novena. Unsure which novena, I asked and she answered "Mother of perpetual help". It was perfect because I thought 9 days novena starting on the 11th; I'll end on 20th, great!
I started the novena and during the mediate and ask phase, I'll take a walk while I mediate or simple do another not so engaging activity while I meditate. I have particular requests, so after mediating, I asked.
Thank u mother of perpetual help, I started this novena, first day of December, praying and hoping for successful induction/graduation of my twin brother, Kenechukwu from the medical school, on the 7th of December, my twin brother was successfully and fully inducted into the profession, thank u lord, thank you mother Mary, hopefully more testimonies are on the way for my family and myself.
I thank Mary Mother of perpetual help for her intercession love and Mercy.
My brother went to work since Tuesday 30/11/21. Last talked with the wife was Wednesday 1/12/21. So by Tuesday she had not heard from him. She called me and narrated the story. I told her to trust in our lady of perpetual help.
I started this novena and was blessed with a huge sum of money which i used to boost my dying business. I was in a great need for money to uplift my business and after the first day of asking our Lady of Perpetual Help for assistance, she proved that indeed she was my mother of perpetual help. Thank you Ma.
Thank you my mother of perpetual help for coming to my family aid, my you my mother be praised, love and bless, for you are my Mother, my hope, my refuge and my strength amen.
I want to thank Our Mother of Perpetual Help for her intercession in getting a visa. Thank you mama Nne Jesu Kristi!
My 10 year old nephew woke up from sleep one morning and couldn’t walk. He was taken to a clinic and all checks ran. Came out negative. The doctors couldn't diagnose what was wrong as his result proved he was perfectly Okay. I started the novena to our lady of perpetual help believing that through her intercession my nephew Chizitelu would rise and walk. On the 9th day of the novena Our Lady of Perpetual Help came through for us through the Holy Ghost Adoration Ministry. Thank you dear Mother you are simply amazing. I have fufilled my promise to testify on this platform and I will be back to share the remaining testimonies as they unfold.
I finished the Novena on Friday and on Monday I was delivered of a big bouncing baby boy!!! Do not underestimate the power of the intercession of our lady. May our lady of perpetual help be loved, praised, honored. May she be my love, my life and my all!
Am so so happy to be a daughter of our lady. This novena librated me and my family from a problem that is only a Mother can solve, Just to say THANK MOM,I love you and will continue to love you MA.
ABOUT NOVENA TO OUR LADY OF PERPETUAL HELP
BRIEF HISTORY OF THE ICON OF OUR LADY OF PERPETUAL HELP
The miraculous image of the Mother of God, under the title of perpetual help, was venerated as early as the 15th century on the isle of crete. At that time, a pious merchant from that island found himself obliged, by the invasion of the Turks, to abandon his native land. Fearing that the sacred image would fall into the hands of the impious persecutors of the Catholic religion, he took it with him to preserve it from sacrilegious profanations.
After a dangerous voyage, during which Our Lady of Perpetual Help preserved the ship that was carrying Her holy image from inevitable shipwreck, the devout merchant arrived in rome, where he died a few days later, in the home of a friend. Before dying he delivered that precious image to his friend, begging him to offer it for public veneration in one of the churches of rome. But his friend, held back by human considerations, did not fulfill the sacred charge and kept the holy image in his power.
The blessed virgin appeared to him three times, ordering him to expose her image for veneration of the faithful in some church in Rome, and as many times that imprudent man refused Her. After a new apparition of Our Lady, accompanied by tremendous threats, that unfaithful trustee feel sick and died.
The widow of this unhappy man persisted in keeping the precious picture in her home. Several admonitions where necessary to convince her to fulfill the divine will. Our Lady appeared twice to a little daughter, just a few years old, of that lady, and commanded her to tell her mother that the virgin of perpetual help wanted her image to be publicly honoured in a church situated on the esquline hill.
The church indicated by the virgin was that of st matthew, which was in the care of the Augustinian fathers. This time the order of the Mother of God was carried out. The image of our Lady of Perpetual Help was venerated in st matthews church for the period of 300 years.
On 23 June 1867, Pope Pius IX granted the image its Canonical Coronation along with its present title. The Redemptorist Congregation of priests and brothers are the religious order currently entrusted by the Holy See to protect and propagate the religious work of art. The feast day of the image is celebrated on June 27
