Day Three – Our Lady of Lourdes
On your feast day, dearest Mother, we thank you for the thousands of miraculous recoveries to the pilgrims who sought healing at your Shrine in Lourdes. It is through your intercession that so many have sought relief and you have answered their prayers. We thank you for the miraculous healings of paralysis, neurological and heart conditions, restoration of vision, tumors vanishing - even a miraculous reconstruction of the hip!
Mary, you are our remedy, for us to turn to, when we suffer and face insurmountable challenges and roadblocks.
On your feast day, I beg you, Our Lady of Lourdes, to shower extraordinary graces upon me, all of my loved ones, as well as all those that I pray for and most especially for Cardinal Burke.
Immaculate Mother, do not forsake me! Queen of Heaven, please take my most urgent petitions to Jesus, your Son, who will not refuse anything that you will ask of Him: (mention all of your intentions, especially for the needs of Cardinal Burke, as well as his continued good health.)
O Mary, Health of the Sick, I am forever grateful for all the graces that you have granted me and my loved ones. May I always endeavor to imitate your virtues, so that I may be with you, forever in heaven. AMEN.
