Closing Prayer

     Most holy Virgin of Peace and Good Voyage, well dost thou merit these two excellent titles; - exercise them in my regard according as it is to the greater honor and glory of God.  Obtain for me that peace which your Blessed Son left in the custody of His Apostles, a peace with which, pardoning my enemies the many offenses they have committed against me, I may love all my neighbors with true love Christian charity.  Obtain for me peace of heart and soul so that my desires will not rebel against reason nor my reason against God.  And, while we are all travelers and strangers in this vale of tears, be thou my guide so that amid the many pitfalls which surround me and the many dangers which beset me, I may, by the observance of the divine commandments be able to take the total road that leads to glory.  Free me from the snares of the devil so that with thy protection I may be able, in the hour of death, to reach the happy end of my travel and enjoy for eternity the glory of thy most sweet company as also that of thy Divine Son.  Amen.


    Remember, O most Blessed Virgin that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided.  Inspired with this confidence, I fly to thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother.  To thee I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions in my necessities, but in thy mercy, hear and answer there.  Amen.

    Here say three Hail Marys for the intention you have in this novena.
