Day 6/54 Water Fast and Novena

The Glorious Mysteries
1 x The Sign of the Cross
1 x Hail Mary


Hail! Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, my Mother Mary, hail! At your feet I humbly pray and offer you a crown of royal-purple roses, to remind you of your glories. Each ten bound together, recalling to you a glorious mystery, with my petition for a particular grace.

O Holy Queen, dispenser of God’s graces and mother of all who invoke your holy name. Do not look upon my gift and fail to see its binding. As you graciously
receive my gift, I humbly implore you to receive my petition; from your bounty I rest assured that you will grant me the favour I so trustingly seek.

1 x Apostles’ Creed, 1 x Our Father, 3 x Hail Marys and 1 x Glory Be.

First Glorious Mystery – The Resurrection
Glorious Mother Mary, meditating on the Mystery of the Resurrection of Our Lord from the Dead, when, on the morning of the third day after His death and burial, He arose from the dead and appeared to you, dear Mother, and filled your heart with unspeakable joy; then appeared to the holy women and to His disciples, who adored Him as their risen God, I humbly pray…


1 x Our Father, 10 x Hail Marys, 1 x Glory Be and 1 x Fatima Prayer.
Then say: I bind these royal-purple roses with a petition for the grace of faith and lay this bouquet at your feet.


Second Glorious Mystery – Ascension
Glorious Mother Mary, meditating on the Mystery of the Ascension, when your divine Son, after forty days on Earth, went to Mount Olivet accompanied by His disciples, where they adored Him for the last time, after which He promised to remain with them until the end of the world; then, extending His pierced hands over them in a last blessing, He ascended into heaven, I humbly pray…

1 x Our Father, 10 x Hail Marys, 1 x Glory Be and 1 x Fatima Prayer.
Then say: I bind these royal-purple roses with a petition for the grace of desire for Heaven and lay this bouquet at your feet.

Third Glorious Mystery – The Descent of the Holy Spirit
Glorious Mother Mary, meditating on the Mystery of the Descent of the Holy Spirit, when, the Apostles being assembled in a house in Jerusalem, the Holy Spirit descended upon them in the form of fiery tongues, inflaming the hearts of the Apostles with the fire of divine love, teaching them all truths and giving to them the gift of tongues, I humbly pray…


1 x Our Father, 10 x Hail Marys, 1 x Glory Be and 1 x Fatima Prayer.
Then say: I bind these royal-purple roses with a petition for the grace of receiving the Holy Spirit and lay this bouquet at your feet.


Fourth Glorious Mystery – The Assumption of Our Blessed Mother Into Heaven
Glorious Mother Mary, meditating on the Mystery of your Assumption into Heaven, when, consumed with the desire to be united with your divine Son, your soul departed from your body and united itself to Him, Who, out of the excessive love He bore for you, His Mother, whose virginal body was His first tabernacle, took that body into Heaven and there, amidst the acclaims of the angels and
saints, fused into it your soul, I humbly pray…

1 x Our Father, 10 x Hail Marys, 1 x Glory Be and 1 x Fatima Prayer.
Then say: I bind these royal-purple roses with a petition for the grace of true devotion to you, dear mother, and lay this bouquet at your feet.


Fifth Glorious Mystery – The Coronation of Our Blessed Mother Mary
Glorious Mother Mary, meditating on the Mystery of your Coronation in Heaven, when, upon being taken up, you were triply crowned as the August Queen of Heaven by God the Father as His beloved daughter, by God the Son as His dearest mother, and by God the Holy Spirit as His chosen spouse; the most perfect adorer of the Blessed Trinity, pleading our cause as our most powerful and merciful mother, through you, I humbly pray…


1 x Our Father, 10 x Hail Marys, 1 x Glory Be and 1 x Fatima Prayer.
Then say: I bind these royal-purple roses with a petition for the grace of trust in your intercession and lay this bouquet at your feet.

Day 6/54 Water fast update

Cravings,cravings ,cravings. I am feeling hungry and lost another 1kg again today so my weight is dropping faster. This could be due to my active lifestyle. Got a few commitments coming up so will not be posting much here. I will keep updating on the water fast and the novena. I am sorry this post was late I was on my walk.
