Day 1

ACT OF CONTRITION

My Lord Jesus Christ, Father of mercy and God of all comfort, who do infinite wonders in heaven and earth; You, Lord, who made me in your image and likeness, and capable of your glory and eternal happiness, benefit that I can never pay you; for the love you have for me; Oh God, whose greatness abyss me, listen to the sincere confession of my sin. Here I am prostrate before your august presence, full of shame, but repentant and ready to relieve you. I confess, Lord, that I have sinned, that I have not avoided the occasions of sin, disregarding the sublime commandments of your holy Law and knowingly working my eternal condemnation. It weighs me down, Lord, it weighs me a thousand times to have stained my soul with the shadows of sin. But like the penitent David, here you have me begging for the forgiveness of my sins by promising the amendment of my life and the health of my soul. Protect me, Lord, I fervently beg you and I ask you for the love you have for your Most Holy Mother, in whose honor I make this novena under the sweet advocation of the Chiquinquira Rosary whose miraculous image was miraculously renewed in Maracaibo before a jealous people of love to the Virgin Mary. For her, then, sweet Jesus, appease your righteous anger and grant me all your clemency, which I need so much to save myself from the dangers that surround me. Amen In whose honor I make this novena under the sweet advocation of the Chiquinquira Rosary, whose miraculous image was miraculously renewed in Maracaibo before a people jealous of love for the Virgin Mary. For her, then, sweet Jesus, appease your righteous anger and grant me all your clemency, which I need so much to save myself from the dangers that surround me. Amen In whose honor I make this novena under the sweet advocation of the Chiquinquira Rosary, whose miraculous image was miraculously renewed in Maracaibo before a people jealous of love for the Virgin Mary. For her, then, sweet Jesus, appease your righteous anger and grant me all your clemency, which I need so much to save myself from the dangers that surround me. Amen

Oh Sovereign Queen of the Skies and earth! That you were raised by grace to a more sublime state than that which our Guardian Angels have by nature, I thank you for the good inspirations that you have lavished on me all my life, and especially on this day; I also thank you that you miraculously renew your Image of the Rosary of Chiquinquirá, expressly to protect your faithful devotees; and I ask that you also renew with your miraculous power in the crude canvas of our hearts the image of your most-begotten Son. Obtain for us also the grace that in this Novena we ask for you through the intercession of your Servants Saint Andrew and Saint Anthony, if it is to be for the greater honor and glory of God and the salvation of our souls. Amen 

Omnipotent and Everlasting God and our Lord, who are the hope and consolation of all the afflicted who invoke you, and you wanted all the goods that we have, and those that we hope to achieve, to come to us by the Blessed Virgin's most worthy mother; Grant that all who piously venerate your birth in mortal flesh and we pray to you in front of this miraculous Image renewed by itself, we feel the perpetual help of its patronage and we are free in the body and in the soul, of all crew. You who live and reign with God the Father in unity of the Holy Spirit, for ever and ever. Amen

Day 9

Oh, Sovereign Queen of the ignited Seraphim! How much I rejoice to see you elevated above all of them and burning with greater purity and intensity, and with more vehemence burning in the divine fire! Look at this selfish modern society that dies for lack of love and that seems to have its life nourished by the hatred that tears it apart: look at the family, almost destroyed by the icy cold that reigns among its members: look at me above all, and see Lady how hard is the ice that covers my warm heart, melt it, Lady in divine love, awaken from the deep lethargy in which it has been for so long, and as well as for love your faithful servants renewed your Image of the Rosary of Chiquinquirá, renew the fibers from my hardened heart; and turn it as white wax. Oh ocean of divine love! Pray for us, infuse in our breasts a spark of fire in which you burn us. You are protective of the faith: convert your erring servants, and make the Zulian society never lose the Catholic faith; see that in this town you miraculously renewed your sacred Image of the Rosary of Chiquinquirá, and in it you receive fervent worship. We ask you this, placing your servants San Andrés and San Antonio as intercessors. Amen
