RMG – World Novena to Mary Help of Christians, the "Powerful Virgin"

04 May 2021

(ANS - Rome) - The tradition of the Novena to Mary Help of Christians, widespread since the time of Don Bosco within the Salesian Family, in recent years has increasingly taken on the dimension of international community prayer, of shared spirituality on a global level, thanks to above all to the initiative of the “worldwide” Novena shared through the channels of the Salesian iNfo Agency. This year the novena is characterized by fixing the gaze on Mary under the invocation of the "Powerful Virgin".

Developed thanks to the collaboration between the Association of Mary Help of Christians (ADMA), the "IME Communication" team and ANS, this year's novena will make us reflect on the power of Mary, fruit of God's love.

Throughout the nine days of preparation for the feast of Mary Help of Christians (15-23 May), a different accent or aspect will be proposed from time to time on which to meditate, thanks to the inspired words of various international influencers and witnesses.

A few days before the novena begins, today a short video presentation of the initiative is shared on the ANSChannel YouTube channel - available in the languages ​​in which the novena itself will be broadcast: Italian, English, Spanish, French, Portuguese and, with subtitles, in Polish.

Finally, it should be noted that on the sdb.org site, in the next few days, a written aid will be made available in the respective languages ​​with all the materials to participate in the novena every day.
