9 Day Holy Rosary Novena to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

STOP World War III

24th JUNE – 2nd JULY

Our Lady warned the three children at Fatima –‘ War is the punishment for sin’

Pope Benedict XV’s Letter

‘Our earnestly pleading voice, invoking the end of the vast conflict, the suicide of civilized Europe, was then and has remained ever since unheard. Indeed, it seemed that the dark tide of hatred grew higher and wider among the belligerent nations and drew the countries into its frightful sweep, multiplying ruin and massacre. Nevertheless, Our confidence was not lessened….Since all Graces which the Author of all good deigns to grant to the poor children of Adam, by a loving design of His Divine Providence are dispensed through the hands of the most holy Virgin, we wish that the petition of Her most afflicted children more than ever in this terrible hour, may turn with lively confidence to the August Mother of God’.

Pope Benedict XV’s Novena Prayer

5th May 1917

‘To Mary, then, who is the Mother of Mercy and omnipotent by grace, let loving and devout appeal go up from every corner of the earth – from noble temples and tiniest chapels, from royal palaces and mansions of the rich as from the poorest hut – from blood-drenched plains and seas. Let it bear to Her the anguished cry of mothers and wives, the wailing of little innocent ones, the sighs of the generous heart; that her most tender and benign solicitude may be moved and the peace we ask for be obtained for our agitated world’.

Almighty Father, we humbly and sincerely ask that you hear our heartfelt prayers and stop WWIII.


Almighty God, may we always pray for, and help the victims of wars and natural disasters.


Lord God, let us pray for all religious and political leaders. May You give them the grace, humility, wisdom and courage to end the aggression and broker peace, which is so desperately needed in our troubled and fallen world.


Heavenly Father, we pray for peace throughout the world, in our homes, in our families, and in our communities and countries, but most especially in our own hearts.


Almighty Father, may you send Your Holy Spirit to renew the face of the earth. Help us break the chains of sin and darkness and lead us into Truth and light.


Lord Jesus, we pray for the poor, the sick, those in prison, the lonely, the marginalized, those suffering from addictions and suicidal thoughts. May they bring their sufferings to the foot of Your cross.


Heavenly Father, we pray for healing for those who have experienced the trauma and wounds of family breakdown, divorce, and all forms of violence, for example domestic violence, child abuse and abortion.


Almighty Father, we humbly ask that You have mercy on your sinful and wayward children. Let us all turn back to Christ the King.


Lord Jesus, You are Merciful and Just. We resolve to turn back to You and make atonement for our sins.
