Novena Prayer to Our Lady of Knock

Our Lady of Knock, Queen of Ireland, you gave hope to your people in a time of distress, and comforted them in sorrow. You have inspired countless pilgrims to pray with confidence to your Divine Son, remembering His promise, Ask and you shall receive; seek and you shall find.

Help me to remember that we are all Pilgrims on the road to Heaven. Fill me with love & concern for my brothers & sisters in Christ, especially those who live with me.

Teach me how to take part ever more reverently in the Holy Mass. Comfort me when I am sick, lonely or depressed. Pray for me now & at the hour of my death. Amen

Wishing all the many visitors at home in Islandeady/Glenisland this summer a very happy & relaxing holiday.
