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.
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’
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
Pray for us
