March 16, 2022 Reflection – A Novena for the Annunciation of the Lord

The First Joyful Mystery

 

A Novena for the Annunciation of the Lord
March 16, 2022

Dear Family of Mary!

Today we begin a Novena for the Annunciation of the Lord. We want to prepare through prayer for this most incredible Feast. I think that the best prayer that we could pray to prepare for the Annunciation would be “The Angelus”! This prayer is so very ancient! And it says everything we need to say to honor Mary for her role in allowing Jesus to become man. It captures the great mystery of it all so simply!

So let’s pray the Angelus prayer together each day! Denis and I will pray it during the Daily Rosary. But I suggest praying The Angelus often throughout the day, and praying the Rosary as much as possible too!! Really this is a time to Pray, Pray, Pray!!!!!

But there is a new development since we arranged this novena. Yesterday there was an announcement from Rome:

“On Friday 25 March, during the Celebration of Penance at which he will preside at 17.00 in Saint Peter’s Basilica, Pope Francis will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The same act, on the same day, will be carried out in Fatima by His Eminence Cardinal Krajewski, Apostolic Almoner, as envoy of the Holy Father.”

We know that Our Lady asked for the Consecration of Russia so that the world would have peace through the Fatima seers. This was her wish! And we know that Our Lady in Medjugorje has asked us to help her fulfill what she began in Fatima. Listen to her words:

August 25, 1991

“Dear Children!
Today also I invite you to prayer,
now as never before when my plan has begun to be realized.

Satan is strong and wants to sweep away my plans of peace and joy
and make you think that my Son is not strong in His decisions.

Therefore, I call all of you, dear children,
to pray and fast still more firmly.

I invite you to self-renunciation for nine days
so that, with your help, everything that I desire to realize
through the secrets I began in Fatima,
may be fulfilled.

I call you, dear children,
to now grasp the importance of my coming
and the seriousness of the situation.

I want to save all souls and present them to God.
Therefore, let us pray that everything I have begun be fully realized.
Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Our Lady said…I invite you to self-renunciation for nine days so that, with your help, everything that I desire to realize through the secrets I began in Fatima, may be fulfilled.

Maybe now is the opportunity for us to help her to realize her plans begun in Fatima and continued in Medjugorje! Let’s join in prayer over the next nine days, and include some self-renunciation, so that Our Lady’s plans can be realized!! Perhaps we will have peace…

Again I suggest that we pray The Angelus often throughout the day, and praying the Rosary as much as possible too!! Really this is a time to Pray, Pray, Pray!!!!!

Let us pray that everything Our Lady has begun will be fully realized now!!

The Angelus Prayer

V. The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.
R. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.

Hail Mary, full of grace,
The Lord is with Thee;
Blessed art thou among women,
And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God,
Pray for us sinners,
Now and at the hour of our death. Amen

V. Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
R. Be it done to me according to thy word.
Hail Mary. . .

V. And the Word was made flesh.
R. And dwelt among us.
Hail Mary. . .

V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray: Pour forth, we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts, that we to whom the Incarnation of Christ Thy Son was made known by the message of an angel, may by His Passion and Cross be brought to the glory of His Resurrection. Through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
