The Lord knows our needs, and He takes delight in giving good things to His children. Jesus tells us in the Gospel of Matthew: “Which one of you would hand his son a stone when he asks for a loaf of bread, or a snake when he asks for a fish? If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good things to those who ask him?”
On this final day of the National Novena to Our Lady of Good Help, we ask the Lord to give us all we need for our salvation and well-being. May we receive the gifts He graciously gives us and use them for His glory here on earth.

Day Nine: For all our Needs
“Go and fear nothing, I will help you…”
O Mary, you are our mother and intercessor. To you do we cry, as the poor banished children of Eve, to you do we send up our sighs, mourning, and weeping in this valley of tears. You told Adele to fear nothing, echoing the words you heard at the Annunciation. I trust these words are meant for me. As I place my confidence in your intercession, I surrender all my fears and worries of life to Jesus through your immaculate hands. Fulfill your promise of help, and obtain from your son whatever graces He wishes to impart to me while I make my pilgrimage on earth to the heavenly kingdom.
