Novena to the Immaculate Conception
• Novena to the Immaculate Conception with commentary from Pope Francis and Saint Josemaria (PDF): On the 8th
of December, we celebrate the beauty of the Virgin Mary. Since it is an
important feast day, it is a custom in the Church to prepare for it 9 days ahead of time. We call it the
novena to the Immaculate Conception. To live it each day, we offer you texts
from the Gospel for your personal prayer, along with some ideas from Saint Josemaria
and Pope Francis. We can learn so much from their affection for our Lady.
