Don’t worry about anything,
but pray about everything.
With thankful hearts offer up your prayers
and requests to God.

Philippians 4:6


Memorare Novena – “Flying Novena” of Mother Teresa

When needing an answer to prayers quickly and without delay, Mother Teresa of Calcutta famously prayed a “Flying” novena. This is a simple and quick way to pray a ‘novena’ when you don’t have the full nine days!

How do you pray this novena? Well, Mother Teresa would pray the Memorare prayer nine times in a row rather than praying it once a day for 9 days. Her religious sisters, the Missionaries of Charity, continue this practice today.

Of course, you can pray it either way.

Memorare Novena Prayers

Pray this prayer nine times.

O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection,
implored your help,
or sought your intercession was left unaided.

Inspired with this confidence,
I fly unto you,
O Virgin of virgins,
my Mother.

To you I come,
before you I stand,
sinful and sorrowful.

O Mother of the Word incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in your clemency hear and answer me. Amen.
