Need a remedy for your problems? Pray this novena of Our Lady of Good Remedy

MAN,SAD,FRUSTRATED

Whether your needs are financial or spiritual, the Virgin Mother can assist you.

We all have problems, some bigger than others, and often we are in desperate need of a solution.

St. John of Matha was in a similar situation and instead of giving up, he turned to the Virgin Mary. Thousands of Christians were being captured and turned into slaves, so St. John asked the Blessed Mother to intercede and provide money for their ransom.

She pulled through and St. John was able to free many Christian slaves. In thanksgiving, he honored Mary as “Our Lady of Good Remedy.”

If anyone knows how to secure a positive remedy to a difficult situation, it is the Blessed Mother.

Here is a special novena of Our Lady of Good Remedy that asks her to “Help me with thy prayers and intercession to find a remedy for my problems and needs.”

O QUEEN OF HEAVEN AND EARTH, Most Holy Virgin, we venerate thee. Thou art the beloved Daughter of the Most High God, the chosen Mother of the Incarnate Word, the Immaculate Spouse of the Holy Spirit, the Sacred Vessel of the Most Holy Trinity.
O Mother of the Divine Redeemer, who under the title of Our Lady of Good Remedy comes to the aid of all who call upon thee, extend thy maternal protection to us. We depend on thee, Dear Mother, as helpless and needy children depend on a tender and caring mother.

Hail, Mary …

O LADY OF GOOD REMEDY, source of unfailing help, grant that we may draw from thy treasury of graces in our time of need. Touch the hearts of sinners, that they may seek reconciliation and forgiveness. Bring comfort to the afflicted and the lonely; help the poor and the hopeless; aid the sick and the suffering. May they be healed in body and strengthened in spirit to endure their sufferings with patient resignation and Christian fortitude.

Hail, Mary …

DEAR LADY OF GOOD REMEDY, source of unfailing help, thy compassionate heart knows a remedy for every affliction and misery we encounter in life. Help me with thy prayers and intercession to find a remedy for my problems and needs, especially for … (Indicate your special intentions here).
On my part, O loving Mother, I pledge myself to a more intensely Christian lifestyle, to a more careful observance of the laws of God, to be more conscientious in fulfilling the obligations of my state in life, and to strive to be a source of healing in this broken world of ours. Dear Lady of Good Remedy, be ever present to me, and through thy intercession, may I enjoy health of body and peace of mind, and grow stronger in the faith and in the love of thy Son, Jesus.

Hail, Mary …

V. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of Good Remedy,
R. That we may deepen our dedication to thy Son, and make the world alive with His Spirit.
