Novena Before Christmas

on December 16, 2009

(Begin on December 16th)
Recite the following prayer every day for 9 days..

Divine Infant,
after the wonders of Your birth in Bethlehem,
You wished to extend Your infinite mercy to the whole world
by calling the Wise Men by heavenly inspiration to Your crib,
which was in this way changed into a royal throne.
You graciously received those holy men
who were obedient to the divine call
and hastened to Your feet.
They recognized and worshipped You as Prince of Peace,
the Redeemer of mankind,
and the very Son of God.

Show us also Your goodness and almighty power.
Enlighten our minds,
strengthen our wills,
and inflame our hearts to know You,
to serve You, and to love You in this life,
that we may merit to find our joy in You
eternally in the life to come.

Jesus, most powerful Child,
I implore You again to help me:

(State your intention here…)

Divine Child,
great omnipotent God,
I implore through Your most Holy Mother’s most powerful intercession,
and through the boundless
mercy of Your omnipotence as God,
for a favorable answer to my prayer during this Novena.

Grant me the grace of possessing You eternally
with Mary and Joseph
and of adoring You with Your holy angels and saints.

Amen.
