Novena to Our Lady of Guadalupe

On The Second Day

Mary, Mother of America, hear the many voices of our land, pleading for the mercy of your Son, seeking the shepherd’s voice to lead them home. Hear the praise of your sons and daughters and bid your Son to free us from the scourges of addiction, selfishness, and want.

REFRAIN O Lady of Guadalupe . . . Our Father. . ., Hail, Mary . . . (3x), Glory be . . .

On The Third Day
