Litany and Novena to Saint Jacinta Marto of Fatima


(For private devotion only. Based upon the much-earlier approved Litany composed by Saint Jean Vianney, the Curé d’Ars, in honor of Saint Philomena. That little saint was a precursor to Saint Jacinta, who, it will be seen by those who  are devoted to her, is also “all-powerful with God” )

Let us pray
We implore Thee, O Lord, by the intercession of Saint Jacinta, Virgin and Martyr of Love, who was ever most pleasing to Thine eyes by reason of her pure and sacrificial heart and her heroic practice of all the virtues, pardon us our sins, grant us all the graces necessary and also this special intention: ______________________. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.



O most pure virgin, glorious martyr of love, St. Jacinta, whom God in His eternal power has revealed to the world in these unhappy days in order to revive the faith, sustain the hope and enkindle the charity of Christian souls, behold me prostrate at thy feet. Deign, O Virgin, full of goodness and kindness, to receive my humble prayers and to obtain for me the special intention for which I pray: ________________.

Saint Jacinta, holy virgin and martyr of love, deign to cast a look of pity from Heaven on thy devoted servant, comfort me in affliction, assist me in danger, above all come to my aid in the hour of death. O Glorious Virgin, pray for the restoration and exaltation of Holy Mother Church, intercede for us that we may spread devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Amen.

This prayer, when said after the Holy Rosary, for nine days, makes a very nice Novena. I recommend following with another nine days of thanksgiving, as you will see this is a very fruitful Novena.

Note: Saint Jacinta Marto of Fatima, as a poor child, had no wealth, no power with which to serve her loving Savior. Thus, she offered Him all that she had. As Mary’s devoted child, she gave to Jesus her entire life, her total surrender of all of her being, suffering all for love of Him, until she died, alone in this world but accompanied by the Queen of the Most Holy Rosary to heaven, surrounded by angels, saints and many other martyrs of the love of Jesus.

. Remember – Our Lady needs us to obey:  First Saturdays of Reparation, daily rosary, at least 5 mysteries, wear her brown scapular and live our Total Consecration to her Immaculate Heart, offering daily duties in reparation and for the conversion of poor sinners.

  Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of our hearts, Mother of the Church, do thou offer to the Eternal Father the Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, for the conversion of poor sinners, especially our Pontiff.
  Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy kingdom come! Viva Cristo Rey!
  St. Joseph, protect us, protect our families, protect our priests.
  St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

Saint Jacinta, most pure daughter of Mary Immaculate, pray for us now and at the hour of persecution.

~ for love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, King.
Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin! Give me strength against thine enemies!
