The first day is Tuesday, the 16th, but I wanted to talk about it now, so I won't let the time slip by...and this prayer is so beautiful, why not say it for just a couple of extra days, eh? There's no reason why we can't do this ~ and then, on Tuesday, get serious about the nine-day succession...(which involves an additional prayer each day).
Christmas is less than two weeks away and what have we done? Have we been giving alms to the poor at this most holy and yet (for so many) sad and lonely time of the year? Jesus came to all of us for the salvation of everyone, yet Our Lady has told us that there are millions of souls in Hell. Have we been saying our daily prayers ~ EVERY DAY ~ for the Holy Souls, for the conversion of sinners, for the spiritual welfare of ourselves and our families, for an end to the scourge of abortion, for the Holy Father and his intentions?!?!
Now is the time to get serious!
Christmas Novena Such a wonderful prayer deserves to be said throughout the month of December, doesn't it? I wish I had known of this one before! You can bet I won't forget it again!
Hail, and blessed be the hour and moment
At which the Son of God was born
Of a most pure Virgin
At a stable at midnight in Bethlehem
In the piercing cold
At that hour vouchsafe, I beseech Thee,
To hear my prayers and grant my desires
(mention request here).
Through Jesus Christ and His most Blessed Mother.
Here is the link to the entire novena so anyone who cares to take part may read it on their own, without having to wonder if I'm going to remember to post it every day, lol:
