Novena to
Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage
Virgin of Antipolo

 

Opening Prayer for All Days

Sovereign Queen of Heaven and Earth, as your intercession is so powerful with Christ, Our Savior, intercede for us with the Divine Majesty that we may obtain the grace we desire in this novena if it is for the greater honor and glory of God and for the good of our own souls. If, however, it is not God’s will, secure for us whatever is most pleasing to Him together with a great conformity to His holy will.

PRAYER FOR THE FIRST DAY

Queen and mistress of Angels, to whom is given the custody of men, do thou help us in our necessities. Defend us from the many and ever present dangers, which surround us. Help us to especially preserve an angelic purity so pleasing to Thee and to the celestial choirs, so that adorned with this precious jewel we may be able to appear in the heavenly nuptial feast of the Immaculate Lamb. Grant that preserving our purity, we may remain in the state of grace in this life, and so obtain an eternal reward, as also the favor we desire and ask in this novena, if it is for the greater honor and glory of God and for the good of our own souls.

Amen.

Prayer for All Days

Most Holy Virgin of Peace and Good Voyage, well dost thou merit these two excellent titles; -- exercise them in our favor to the greater honor and glory of God. Obtain for us that peace which your Blessed Son left in the custody of His Apostles, a peace with which, pardoning our enemies the many offenses they have committee against us, we may love all our neighbors with true love and Christian charity. Obtain for us peace of heart and soul so that our desires will not rebel against reason, or our reason against God. And, while we are all travelers and strangers in this valley of tears, be Thou our guide so that amid the many pitfalls which surround us, and the many dangers which beset us, we may, by the observance of the divine commandments be able to take the royal road that leads to glory. Free us from the snares of the devil so that with Thy protection we may be able, in the hour of death, to reach the happy end of our travel and enjoy for eternity the glory of Thy most sweet company as also that of the Divine Son. Amen.

MEMORARE

Remember, O most Blessed Virgin, that never was it known, that anyone who fled to Thy protection, implored Thy help, or sought Thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, we fly unto Thee, O Virgin of Virgins, our Mother. To Thee we come, before Thee we kneel, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions in our necessities, but in Thy mercy, hear and answer them. Amen.

PRAYER FOR THE SECOND DAY

Queen and mistress of the Archangels, to whom are charged with the most important affairs of the Glory of God and the concern of men, we beg of Thee, our Mother, by the merits of the sovereign spirits, that Thou obtain from God the eternal salvation of our souls, our most urgent concern, which is also pleasing to your Blessed Son and who in truth did not hesitate to shed His precious blood for our salvation. And furthermore, grant us the grace, which we ask in this novena, if it is for the greater honor and glory of God and for the good of our own souls.

Amen.

PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF PEACE AND GOOD VOYAGE

O Lady of Peace and Good Voyage, Virgin of Antipolo, look kindly upon the needs of your children, as we journey to our home in heaven. For you, O Mother, know full well what it is to travel on the road.

From that room in Nazareth where you received the joyful news from the angel, Gabriel, you taught us the generosity of a Christian obedience that surrenders and entrusts all to Divine Providence.

In your journey to that stable in Bethlehem on that first Christmas night, you taught us how to treasure in our hearts the overwhelming graciousness of Our Father.

In your flight to Egypt, with your newborn, you taught us the quiet courage that springs from a firm faith in God, even in the face of great danger and suffering.

In that sorrowful climb up to Calvary on that fateful Friday afternoon, you taught us how a human love can rise to greater heights by self-giving and forgiveness when transformed and united to ineffable Divine Love.

O Mother, you give us so much hope and encouragement by your example of filial love and discipleship. As you accompanied Christ in your journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem, from Egypt to Galilee and finally to Calvary, you discovered the loving presence of God in ever new ways.

O Mother, as we undertake our own journey on this road, accompany us in our discovery of God in our lives and in the lives of other people. Make us see with the eyes of our hearts, and help us to know Him and to grow deeper in His love through life's joys and pains. And at our journey's end, lead us to the doorsteps of heaven and bring us to your Son Jesus who has secured and prepared for us a place in our Father's home.

Amen.
