Novena to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary

Mary, Queen Assumed into Heaven,
I rejoice that after years of heroic martyrdom on earth,
you have at last been taken to the throne
prepared for you in heaven by the Holy Trinity.

Lift my heart with you in the glory of your Assumption
above the dreadful touch of sin and impurity.
Teach me how small earth becomes when viewed from heaven.
Make me realize that death is the triumphant gate
through which I shall pass to your Son,
and that someday my body shall rejoin my soul
in the unending bliss of heaven.

From this earth,
over which I tread as a pilgrim,
I look to you for help.
I ask for this favor:

(State your intention here...)

When my hour of death has come,
lead me safely to the presence of Jesus
to enjoy the vision of my God for all eternity together with you.
