Novena Prayer of St. Pius X to the Immaculate Virgin Mary Starting Nov 29

O most hold Virgin who didst find favor in God’s sight and hast become
His Mother, O Virgin, immaculate in body and soul, in thy faith and in thylove, look down with pity on the wretched, who in our need seek thy pow-
erful protection.

The evil serpent on whom was cast the primal curse continues, alas, to
attack and ensnare the poor children of Eve. But thou, our Mother
Blessed, our Queen and our Advocate, who from the first instant of thy
conception didst crush the head of this cruel enemy, receive our prayers:
United to thee with one heart, we beseech thee to present them before the
throne of God. May we never be caught in the snares around us, but rather
may we all reach the harbor of salvation. Despite the awesome perils
which threaten us, may God’s Church and all Christian society sing out
once again the hymn of deliverance, of victory and of peace.
