The Fifty-four Day Rosary Novena to Our Lady
The Fifty-four Day Rosary Novena to Our Lady The Novena consists of five decades of the Rosary each day for twenty-seven days in petition; then immediately five decades each day for twenty seven days in thanksgiving, whether or not the request was granted. The meditations vary from day to day. On the first day meditate on the Joyful Mysteries; on the second the Sorrowful Mysteries; on the third day, the Glorious Mysteries; on the fourth day meditate again on the Joyful Mysteries, and so on throughout the 54 days of the novena. For those who pray the Rosary daily, it will be simply a matter of making a petitionary request and then an offering of thanksgiving. For those who do not, this is certainly a laborious novena, but a Novena of Love. The sincere will not find it too difficult at all. Should your request not be granted, be assured that our Lord God, and His Queen of the Holy Rosary, know what each one of us stand most in need of and has heard your prayer. You will not have prayed in vain. No prayer ever went unheard, and Our blessed Lady has never been known to fail us, her spiritual children. Look at each Hail, Mary! as a rare and beautiful rose which you lay at Maryâ€™s feet. These spiritual roses, bound in a wreath of Spiritual Communions, will be the most pleasing gift to her, and will bring down upon the faithful many graces. If you would reach the innermost recesses of her heart, lavishly bedeck your wreath with spiritual diamonds- that is partaking in the Blessed Sacrament of her Son-body, blood, soul, and divinity-the her joy will be unbounded.
