GCSofUSA invites for a Special Rosary prayer Meeting to Our Lady of Mount.

Dear Friends,

Please note the Novena started from September 01, and it will end on September 08. Due to long weekend and school s are open we are not able to have a daily prayer meeting. Mr. Prasann and family wanted to have a prayer meeting at their new residence. They have invited all the members of GCSofUSA and faithful to join them in special rosary prayer meeting at their residence. They are big believer of Mount Mary and wanted to pray Mother Mary to bless their home and their family.

Short details about Mount Mary:

This beautiful, wooden statue was initially brought by the Jesuits from Portugal during the sixteenth century. It was then placed atop the main altar of a tiny oratory on a hill at Lands’ End in Bandora (Bandra). Over the centuries devotion to this statue grew tremendously as numerous favours were granted.  As its popularity increased so did the number of devotees and pilgrims that  visited this shrine from all over, often referring to it as…’Our Lady of the Mount’

Novena Prayer

God our heavenly Father,

The day of our salvation dawned

When the Blessed Virgin

Gave birth to your son,

Christ our Lord,

Who set us free from sin

And gave us new life.

As we celebrate her nativity,

And join now in constant prayer with her,

We implore you

To heal the sick,

To comfort the sorrowful,

To pardon sinners,

And to grant us our special petition…

Look graciously upon us

And help us in learn from Mary

The depths of discernment and dedication to service.

Enable us, by the guidance of your Spirit,

To journey with young persons

And support them in their vocational discernment,

In the fundamental choices they make

And in their effort to be joyful witnesses

Of your Son, Jesus

You deigned to do great things

For the Virgin Mary

And brought her body and soul

To the glory of heaven:

Fill the hearts of your children

With the hope of Christ’s glory.


Our Lady of the Mount
