O salutaris hostia, Quae coeli pandis ostium, Bella premunt hostilia, Da robur, fer auxilium.
Uni trinoque Domino, Sit sempiterna Gloria. Que vitam sine termino, Nobis donet in patria. – Amen.
PRAYER TO SANTO NINO
O Senor Santo Nino, *You are king and our God, *We worship You, *You are our strong Defender, *We turn to You;
*You are the Patron of Cebu and the Philippines, *We come to you; *You have made *extraordinary wonders through Your Miraculous Image *in these chosen Islands, *remember us. Look down at this poor soul *that comes to You for help. Lead us with Your wisdom. *discipline us with Your Truth, *console us with Your Tenderness, *protect us with Your Might.
We consecrate today *our thoughts to You, *only with You *shall they be occupied; *our words, *only of You *shall they speak; *our sufferings, that we may endure them *for Your sake. We beg You, *Senor Santo Nino, *illumine our understanding, *kindle our will, *cleanse our body, *sanctify our soul. *We wish what You wish, *because You wish, *as You wish, *as long as You wish.
Grant us, Senor Santo Nino, *that We may feel *love toward You, *be strict toward ourselves *be zealous toward our fellowmen, *and rightly despise *the things of the world. *Help us *to overcome sensuality *with strict discipline, *avariciousness with generosity, *anger with gentleness, *indolence with zealous industry. *Make us wise in counsel, *courageous in danger, *patient in adversity, *humble in prosperity.
Teach us, *dear Santo Nino, *how worthless is the world, *how sublime is heaven, *how brief is time, *how long is eternity. *Grant us, lastly, that We may remember You, *adore You, *love You, *and serve You *here on earth *that We may be happy with You *forever and ever in Heaven. Amen.
Holy God, we praise Your name. Lord of all! We bow before You; All on earth Your sceptre claim, All in heaven above adore You; Infinite Your vas domain, Everlasting is Your reign.
Hark! the loud celestial hymn, Angels choirs above are raising; Cherubim and Seraphim In unceasing chorus praising, Fill the Heav'ns with sweet accord Holy, Holy, Holy Lord!
Recite three times Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory be to the Father in honor of Santo Nino.
Ask Senor Santo Nino the favor you want to obtain in this Novena.
