O MERCIFUL, JESUS, Who did in Thy early infancy
commence Thy office of Savior for us. You shed Thy precious blood
and assumed for us that name which is above all names; we
thank Thee for such early proofs of Thy infinite love.
We venerate Thy sacred name in union with the profound respect
of the angel who first announced it to the earth and unite our
affections to the sentiments of tender devotion, which the
adorable name of Jesus has in all ages enkindled in the hearts
of Thy saints.
Animated with a firm faith in Thy unerring word, and penetrated
with confidence in Thy mercy, we now humbly remind Thee of the
promise Thou has made, that where two or three should assemble in
Thy name, Thou Thyself would be in the midst of them.
Come, then, into the midst of us most amiable Jesus, for it is
in thy sacred name we are here assembled; Come into our hearts,
that we may governed by Thy holy spirit;
mercifully grant us, through that adorable name, which is the
joy of heaven, the terror of hell, the consolation of the afflicted
and the solid ground of our unlimited confidence, all the petitions
we make in this Novena.
O blessed Mother of our Redeemer, who did participate so touchingly
in the sufferings of thy dear Son when He shed His sacred blood
and assumed for us the name of Jesus, obtain for us, throughout that
adorable name, the favors we petition in this Novena.
Beg also, that the most ardent love may imprint on our hearts
that sacred name, that it may be always in our minds and frequently
on our lips; that it may be our defense and our refuge in the temptations
and trials of life, and our consolation and support in the hour of death. Amen
