Christmas Novena to the Christ Child

Christmas Novena to the Christ Child
DAY FOUR – 19 December

The Life Of Humiliation Which Jesus Led From His Birth.

O Dearest Saviour,
You have embraced so many outrages for love of me, yet I have not been able to bear one word of insult without at once being filled with resentful thought, I who have so often deserved to be trodden under foot by the demons in hell! I am ashamed to appear before You, sinful and proud as I am. Yet do not drive me from Thy presence, O Lord, even though that is what I deserve. You have said that You will not spurn a contrite and humbled heart. I am sorry for the offenses I have committed against You. Forgive me, O Jesus. I will not offend You again.

For love of me You hast bore so many injuries; for love of You I will bear all the injuries that are done to me. I love You, Jesus, who was despised for love of me. I love You above every other good. Give me the grace to love You always and to bear every insult for love of You.

O Mary, recommend me to your Son; pray to Jesus for me. Amen



Passionate Catholic. Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.
