Christmas Novena

First Day (December 16th)

O God and saviour of our souls, sweet infant Jesus, Whom the angels and shepherds adored in the stable of Bethlehem on that Holy night, when thou wert born of the Virgin Mary; we offer Thee our profound adoration and our most earnest thanksgiving for having become Man for our Redemption and Salvation. Grant that we may apply all of our powers to fulfill thy gracious designs, that we may become perfectly renewed in heart, and inflamed with Thy holy Love.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, Hail and Blessed Be the hour and the moment….

Second Day (December 17th)

O Merciful Redeemer, Who disdst vouchsafe to remain in the chaste cloister of Mary’s womb, hidden and unknown, though Thou wast the Eternal word, and the Wisdom of the Father. O, grant that we may learn from Thee to love solitude and silence, and escape the evils that are found in the tumult and distractions of the world; grant us greater purity of mind and of heart; grant that we may glorify Thee and edify others, by our purity and modesty.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, Hail and Blessed Be the hour and the moment….

Third Day (December 18th)

O infant God, Who, from the moment of Thy Conception in Holy Mary’s womb, didst offer Thyself to Thine Eternal Father for the salvation of our souls. O vouchsafe, to give us a lively sense of the one thing necessary, so that we may labor zealously for others, and work our own salvation in fear and trembling, yet with confidence in Thy love.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, Hail and Blessed Be the hour and the moment….

Fourth Day (December 19th)

O Sweetest Jesus, Who didst go up to Bethlehem in the womb of Mary, to obey the command of Cesar, who had ordered all his subjects to be enrolled. O grant us grace to obey with alacrity the most arduous commands from those who hold Thy place over us.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, Hail and Blessed Be the hour and the moment….

Fifth Day (December 20th)

O Most adorable Jesus, Who, upon Thine arrival at Bethlehem wast rejected by all men. O Grant us to follow Thine example in sufferings and contempt, that we may welcome Thee joyfully into our hearts, when Thou seekest an entrance there, either by holy inspirations or by Thine divine sacraments.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, Hail and Blessed Be the hour and the moment….

Sixth Day (December 21st)

O Divine Infant, Who, when excluded from Bethlehem, didst inspire Thy holy Mother to retire to a poor and wretched stable, in which obscure and humble place it was Thy will to be born, in order to confound our pride, and to teach us humility. O grant, that henceforth, conforming ourselves to Thy will, we may renounce all pomp and pride, and become truly meek and humble of heart.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, Hail and Blessed Be the hour and the moment….

Seventh Day (December 22nd)

O Divine Word, who for the love of us, Thy poor creatures, wast pleased to be born under the most lowly roof, to be wrapped in the meanest swaddling bands, and to be laid in a vile manger, among beasts, and to suffer a thousand evils. O grant that we also may renounce all worldly vanities, and embrace poverty of spirit, and mortification of the flesh, so necessary for our perfection. Grant that we may be thoroughly detached from creatures, and poor in all things save in Thy Love and Thy Grace.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, Hail and Blessed Be the hour and the moment….

Eighth Day (December 23th)

O Divine Saviour, O King of peace, Who wast pleased to make Thine appearance among us when the whole world was in peace. O vouchsafe to send us thy peace, so that all our powers being brought into subjection to Thee, Thou mayest at the approaching solemnity, be born anew into our souls.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, Hail and Blessed Be the hour and the moment….

Ninth Day (December 24th)

O divine Saviour, O king of immortal glory, Who, in Thy great mercy, didst come into the world to redeem us, and to make us holy. O grant that, denying all ungodliness and love of this world, we may live soberly in ourselves, justly toward our neighbor, and piously before Thee, that so we may be happy with Thee for all eternity.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, Hail and Blessed Be the hour and the moment….

Advent Prayer

Hail and Blessed be the hour and the moment in which the son of God was born of the most pure blessed Virgin Mary at midnight in Bethlehem, in the piercing cold. In that hour, vouchsafe, O my God, to hear my prayer and grant my petitions, through the merits of Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.
