Novena to the Most Pure Heart of Mary:

In 1805, Pope Pius VII instituted the feast of the Most Pure Heart of Mary; it was not until 1944 that Pope Pius XII would add to the Roman Rite Calendar, the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (August 22nd). This glorious feast of the Most Pure Heart has been practiced since 1647 by Saint John Eudes and quickly gained popularity all over France. Eudes, soon after composed the prayers for the Divine Office and gained approval of it in 1648; it was eventually adopted by many religious congregations in his native France. Now, this ancient feast is celebrated on the Saturday after Corpus Christi following the feast of the Sacred Heart. It is no mere coincidence these two principle feasts are placed side by side (just as the First Friday is next to the First Saturday). This should evermore remind us of Our Lord’s ardent request at Fatima, that He desires to see devotion to His Mother’s Heart placed beside devotion to His Sacred Heart. For Their Heart(s) truly beat as One.

Nine Day Novena to the Most Pure Heart ( Begins on Corpus Christi):

  • Novena can be used for the Immaculate Heart, starts nine days before August 22nd.

Daily prayer during Novena:

O’ Queen of Heaven, at Fatima You promised salvation to those who embrace true devotion to Your Immaculate Heart; today we come to Your Majesty ready to make reparation for all the sins committed against Thy Most Pure Heart. You see, Good Mother, we only desire to make You known and loved; cherished and chosen. We desire with Your Chaste Son, to see Your Sorrowful Heart triumph. ~Amen~

 Jesus, it is for love of You, the conversion of sinners and as an act of reparation for all the sins made against the Immaculate Heart of Mary (Three times).

Day 1- Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary:

Mary, Your Heart is our daily food, our nourishment. In It, we find God, and God alone. In our lifetime, we beg the Good God to place devotion to Your Heart beside devotion to the Sacred and Divine Heart of His Son. Place in our hearts the yearning and love of the feast(s) of Your Most Pure Heart and Your Most Immaculate Heart. As a Queen sits next to Her King, may we see Your pierced Heart placed beside His Eucharistic Heart. Our love for You and Your Perfect Heart is weak and imperfect, from this day forth we come to Your Queenship ready to love You evermore. We also place in Your care the following requests if it be in line with the Divine Will (mention your intention).

Day 2- The Holy Father:

Dearest Queen, at Fatima you said the Holy Father would have much to suffer. In the vision, You showed a future pope and a bishop dressed in white, Lucia said: “we had the impression it was the Holy Father.” This pope would be seen martyred in a half ruined city among other religious. The Vatican has kept secret Your Majesty’s words explaining the vision. As we walk forward in the fog, we pray that The Holy Father will reveal the secret in it’s entirety so we can better understand the meaning of this mystery. A vision still unfulfilled. We know disasters can be averted if we entrust ourselves to Your Immaculate Heart, and with little Jacinta, offer up every sacrifice for the Holy Father to receive the grace he so urgently needs to heed Your requests from 1917.

We also place in Your care the following requests if it be in line with the Divine Will (mention your intention).

Day 3- All the Bishops of the World:

Good Mother, at Akita You warned that there would come a time where Holy Church would see cardinal apposing cardinal; bishop against bishop. It would appear we are in those times; we come to You this day to place in the tender care of Your Immaculate Heart all the bishops of the world. You also warned priests devoted to Your Queenship would be scorned and oppressed by their confreres.We beg of You to obtain the grace for these shepherds, to be faithful and pleasing to Your Divine Son- even amid persecution. At Fatima, Your Grace warned that there would be an apostasy in the Church starting at the top of the Catholic hierarchy. We are indeed, at present, suffering a diabolical disorientation and many souls are being led astray by our bishops. May You open their eyes and hearts to Your Pure Heart, Church teachings and loyalty to Your ignored Fatima message.

We also place in Your care the following requests if it be in line with the Divine Will (mention your intention).

Day 4- First Saturday Devotion:

Devout Virgin, we come before Your throne of grace ready to console Your Most Pure Heart. Our Lord told Sister Lucia that His Heart was moved to establish a devotion that would remove the five principle thorns that pierce Our Mother’s Broken Heart:

  1. The blasphemies against the Immaculate Conception.
  2. Against Her Perpetual Virginity.
  3. Against Her Divine Maternity, refusing at the same time to accept Her as Mother of all mankind.
  4. Those who try publicly to implant in the children’s hearts, indifference, contempt and even hate against this Immaculate Mother.
  5. Those who insult Her directly in Her sacred images.

The thought of causing You anymore pain is unbearable, therefore, we wish to be faithful in observing the practice of the First Saturday Devotion, not just for the first five consecutive Saturdays, but ALL to come. With Lucia of Fatima, may we echo her cry:

I never feel so happy as when First Saturday arrives…

We also place in Your care the following requests if it be in line with the Divine Will (mention your intention).

Day 5- Consecration of Russia:

Sister Lucia lamented,

The Consecration of Russia has not been done as Our Lady demanded it. I was not able to say it because I did not have permission of the Holy See.

Gentle Mother, we know that the triumph of Your Heart followed by the sweet era of peace can only come with the proper consecration of Russia. This day, we come to Your Ladyship and pray specifically for the Holy Father to come in union with all the bishops of the world on one solemn occasion and consecrate Russia to Your Immaculate Heart. With Lucia we cry from the depths of our hearts,

No! Not the world! Russia! Russia!

The evil one knows that when this consecration is done, Your Heart will triumph at that moment. We know this, because when Your servant Lucia asked Our Lord why He would not convert Russia without the pope, He answered that through that particular Consecration, Jesus wants the whole Church to recognize that act as a triumph of the Immaculate Heart. Our good God does not need to work through His priests, but He is showing the authority bestowed upon His clergy, in particular the Holy Father and the bishops. The power they can possess when they are in union. What better way to show this great unity, O’ Blessed Queen, than to come together for this Consecration!

We also place in Your care the following requests if it be in line with the Divine Will (mention your intention).

Day 6- Our Lady of the Holy Rosary:

O’ Great Lady of the Rosary, we know this triumphant weapon of prayer resembles the sword. How can we go to battle against principalities and powers unarmed? You introduced Yourself at Fatima with this glorious title and we come to Your Feet crying on bended knee: Hail Mary! We desire to be in the army of Your Most Pure, Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart; may we never put down the sword but ever carry it at our side all the days of our lives.

We also place in Your care the following requests if it be in line with the Divine Will (mention your intention).

-Recite daily prayer-

  Day 7- Our Lady of Seven Sorrows:

Mother crucified in Thy Heart, we cry with Thee; we understand that devotion to Your Heart means devotion to Your Sorrows. The Church has proclaimed that this very name earned You the title of “Co-redemptrix”. It is a great wonder, O’ Virgin of  virgins, that Our Lady of Seven Sorrows is the Patron of exorcists; is it not Your tears that make things clean? If “to consecrate” means “to be made clean”, certainly a Consecration of Russia can be seen as that poor nation being made holy with Your precious tears, by transforming this Republic into a mighty instrument of Your Heart. Mary, joining our tears to Yours we beg of Your Grace to wash the world of it’s sins, crimes and offenses made against God the Father. With Your Divine Son we wish to avert God’s justice and bring upon the world His great and unfathomable mercy, which can only come through Your Humble Heart. We meditate this day on the great mystery of Your having appeared on October 13th 1917 as Our Lady of Seven Sorrows, while at Fatima.

We also place in Your care the following requests if it be in line with the Divine Will (mention your intention).

Day 8- Our Lady of Mount Carmel:

“Star of the Sea”, Our Carmelite Father Simon Stock called You; we thank Your Highness for the glorious gift of Your Scapular of Mount Carmel. As it was revealed to a holy soul, the three things Satan fears the most: The Holy Name of Jesus, the Holy Name of Mary and the Scapular of Carmel. In no other sacred object do You promise more certainty of salvation as You do for wearing the Scapular. O’ Mary; You showed Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta the vision of Hell, but immediately reminded the world how to avoid going there, simply by wearing Your Carmelite garment, which as we know is the sign of our being consecrated to Your Immaculate Heart. It is no mere coincidence that you appeared on October 13th to the three fortunate seers as Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Like the Rosary, we promise to never be without our “armor”, we need the sword as much as we need our shield. As Lucia said, the Holy Rosary and the Scapular of Carmel are inseparable.

One day through the Scapular and the Rosary I will save the world. ~Our Lady to Saint Simon Stock~

We also place in Your care the following requests if it be in line with the Divine Will (mention your intention).

Day 9- Third Secret of Fatima:

On this final day, O’ Valiant Queen, we recognize You as Virgo Potens (Virgin Most Powerful). It has been confirmed by Church officials that the third secret of Fatima contained two envelopes: one of the vision of a Holy Father martyred, and the other containing Your words explaining this prophecy of the pope. As the latter has yet to be revealed, we understand that it’s publication is long overdue, as You requested it’s contents be released in 1960. We come to Your Queenship, today, in 2020 knowing that it is late, but asking that You will have mercy on the clergy who keep it hidden. Give them the grace and light to understand that Fatima is the message and remedy for our times and without it, Your Immaculate Heart cannot triumph if Your warnings for mankind are not heeded. The Pope and bishops have only one task: the Consecration of Russia; we lay faithful: Your First Saturday Devotion. As we all have a role to play, Good Mother, we ask pardon of the sins made against Thee, and thank Your Most Pure Heart for all the graces you have bestowed on us.

We also place in Your care the following requests if it be in line with the Divine Will (mention your intention).

-Recite daily prayer above-

Feast day of the Most Pure Heart of Mary- final prayer of thanksgiving:

Mary, on this most joyous occasion and feast day we offer ourselves to You completely, like Therese, as little victims of holocaust- to bring about the triumph of Your Most Pure and Immaculate Heart. Like the sixteen Carmelite Martyrs of Compiegne, who offered themselves as victims as a community to end the French Revolution’s “Reign of Terror”. Lovely Maiden of Heaven, Our Lord heard those requests, please accept ours as well, as we truly desire only one thing: to love Thee as You deserve to be loved! As Jacinta said,

Tell everybody that God grants us graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary; that people are to ask Her for them; and that the Heart of Jesus wants the Immaculate Heart of Mary to be venerated at His side. Tell them also to pray to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for peace, since God has entrusted it to Her. If I could only put into the hearts of all, the fire that is burning within my own heart, and that makes me love the Hearts of Jesus and Mary so very much . . .

  1. Jacinta of Fatima once expressed to Lucia and Francisco: “Oh, how I wish I had a medal that I could wear with the Sweet Heart of Mary on one side and the Sweet Heart of Jesus on the other.”

    Well, that medal is in existence and is the official medal worn by the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Being a third order member of that organization, I also wear that medal.

    But best of all, those two feasts are now back to back, just as Jacinta wanted them on a medal. In the very liturgical calendar of the Church, we now enjoy the two together.

    God bless little Jacinta for first suggesting it!

    In Their Sweet Hearts, Phyllis
