Novena to Our Lady of Perpetual Help
Mother of Perpetual help,
thou art the dispenser of every grace that God grants us in our misery.
For this reason He hast made thee so powerful, so rich,
and so kind that thou might help us in our needs.
Thou art the advocate of the most wretched and abandoned sinners, if they but come to thee. Come to my aid for I commend myself to thee.
In thy hands I place my eternal salvation; to thee I entrust my soul.
Count me among thy most faithful servants. Take me under thy protection; that is enough for me.
If thou doth protect me, I shall fear nothing: not my sins, because thou wilt obtain for me their pardon and remission; not the evil spirits, because thou art mightier than all the powers of Hell; not even Jesus, my Judge, because He is appeased by a single prayer of thine.
I fear only that through my own negligence I may forget to recommend myself to thee and so lose my soul. My dear Lady, obtainest for me the forgiveness of my sins, love for Jesus, final perseverance, and the grace to have recourse to thee at all times, Mother of Perpetual Help.

St. Bernard on Mary's Intercession
"In dangers, in doubts, in difficulties, think of Mary, call upon Mary.
Let not her name depart from your lips, never suffer it to leave your heart.
And that you may more surely obtain the assistance of her prayer, neglect not to walk in her footsteps.
With her for guide, you shall never go astray;
while invoking her, you shall never lose heart;
so long as she is in your mind, you are safe from deception;
while she holds your hand, you cannot fall;
under her protection you have nothing to fear;
if she walks before you, you shall not grow weary;
if she shows you favot.,"You shall reach the goal"
