Praying with Mary MacKillop
A handy in your bag or pocket prayer book. Includes Saint Mary MacKillop novena.
Praying with Mary MacKillop contains Mary’s reflective prayers to the Sacred Heart, St Joseph and Mary, Mother of God. It has a prayer for the holding cross, the Pilgrim and the Mary MacKillop novena and litany.
A novena is a series of prayers that are said for nine straight days. The nine days remind us of the days the Apostles and the Blessed Virgin Mary spent in prayer between the Ascension and Pentecost.
A litany is a formal prayer fo God which includes requests through the intercession of Mary, the angels and the saints. In the Mary MacKillop Litany we pray for God’s mercy and ask Mary Mother of God, Joseph and John the Baptist to pray with us and St Mary of the Cross. This litany contains a beautiful list that reflects the attitudes and spirituality of St Mary of the Cross.
