54 Day Rosary Novena – Day 37

Day 37

Life as a child is great. There is not a care in the world. All you had to do was get up in the morning, jump out of bed and begin your day. You would go to the table and a meal would be provided, someone would bring you to the bus or drive you to school. But, there wasn’t a worry in the world. Now, there are exceptions to this perfect scenario, but most children live care free lives. This is how it should be in our relationship with God. We pick up the newspaper or turn on the news and get into a tizzy. All of the adult problems that come our way cause great anxiety that some times lead to health problems. In the midst of it all, God wants us to live like little children, in complete trust of His providence. Yes, we do need to take seriously our responsibilities to our families, our jobs and other obligations, but in all of it, we must put our trust in our Heavenly Father.

The Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary

Prayer before the recitation: Sign of the cross. Hail Mary.

In petition (first 27 days): Hail, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, my Mother Mary, hail! At thy feet I humbly kneel to offer thee a Crown of Roses, snow white buds to remind thee of thy joys, each bud recalling to thee a holy mystery, each 10 bound together with my petition for a particular grace. O Holy Queen, dispenser of God’s graces, and Mother of all who invoke thee, thou canst not look upon my gift and fail to see its binding. As thou receivest my gift, so wilt thou receive my petition; from thy bounty thou wilt give me the favor I so earnestly and trustingly seek. I despair of nothing that I ask of thee. Show thyself my Mother!

O Holy Queen, Dispenser of God’s graces. and Mother of all who invoke thee! Thou canst not look upon my gift and fail to see its binding. As thou receivest my gift, so wilt thou receive my thanksgiving; from thy bounty thou hast given me the favor I so earnestly and trustingly sought.
