Prayer to Our Lady of Vailankanni
O Mary! Our Mother of Health, and our Heavenly Queen, seated on your throne of mercy and compassion in your Holy Shrine at Vailankanni, we praise and honor you to be our refuge and our relief.
Numberless are the sick who have recovered health through your intercession. Relying on your power and goodness, we come to you and implore you to heal our infirmities and to obtain for us perfect health of body and soul, that we may better be able to serve you and your divine Son.
At all times, you have been the help and consolation of the infirm. You obtain for them health when it is conducive to their salvation. You assist them at the time of their death. Help us then, O most amiable Mother and obtain for us cure from all our sufferings, or patience to endure them in the spirit of resignation agreeable to God’s Holy Will, so that all our trials and sufferings may help to purify our souls and help us to detach ourselves from all earthly ties. Amen.
Novena to Our Lady of Vailankanni
O Most Holy Virgin! You were chosen by the Most Adorable Trinity from all eternity to be the most pure Mother of Jesus.
O Tender Mother of the afflicted!
Grant me under my present necessities
that special protection You have promised
to those who devoutly commemorate this ineffable joy.
Relying on the infinite mercies of your Divine Son,
trusting in the promise which He has made
that those who ask should receive,
and penetrated with confidence in your powerful prayers,
I most humbly entreat you intercede for me.
I beg you to obtain for me the favours
which I petition for in this novena,
if it be the Holy Will of God to grant them;
to ask for me whatever graces I most stand in need of.
(Here specify your requests…)
O Mother of God,
accept these salutations
in union with the respect and veneration
with which the Angel Gabriel first hailed you,
“Full of Grace”.
Say 9 times the Hail Mary…
I beseech you, O comfortress of the afflicted, by the joy you received,
when the word was made flesh,
to obtain for me the favours and graces,
which I have now implored through your powerful intercession.
For this end I offer you all the good works
which have ever been performed in your honour.
I most humbly entreat you
for the love of the amiable Heart of Jesus,
with which yours was ever so inflamed,
to hear my humble prayers
and to obtain my requests.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help,
or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence,
I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother;
to thee do I come,
before thee I stand,
sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
Our Lady of Good Health, Pray for Us (Say 3 times)
