Novena of Surrender to the Will of God, Day Nine
(Jesus speaks to Fr. Ruotolo)
Pray always in readiness to surrender, and you will receive from it great peace and great rewards, even when I confer on you the grace of immolation, of repentance and of love. Then what does suffering matter? It seems impossible to you? Close your eyes and say with all your soul, “Jesus, you take care of it.” Do not be afraid, I will take care of things and you will bless my name by humbling yourself. A thousand prayers cannot equal one single act of surrender, remember this well. There is no novena more effective than this: “O Jesus, I surrender myself to you, take care of everything!”
O Jesus, I surrender myself to you, take care of everything! (10 times)
Mother, I am yours now and forever. Through you and with you I always want to belong completely to Jesus.
Let us pray 7 Our Fathers, 7 Hail Marys and 7 Glory be
Lord Jesus, through the Intercession of Your Mother, Mary, we want pray always in readiness to surrender ourselves to You, as You ask, saying “Jesus, you take care of it”. May we learn to surrender our entire selves to You, just as Our Lady did her entire life. In that way may we give you glory and honor all our days, and especially at this celebration of your Incarnation and Nativity. We are all yours through the guidance and intercession of our Mother, Mary! Amen.
