Christmas Novena: December 17-23

O Lord, Word of God, You, whose glory is complete, came to us in perfect humility as a child in the womb. Your love for us and humility is unsurpassed and brings us to our knees in prayer and worship.

Your incarnation forever changed the world.

All Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning is now and forever shall be, world without end.

Amen.

Concluding Prayer every Day
Let us pray:

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, I implore you, to hear my prayers and grant my desires

(mention request[s] here).

We offer this prayer to you, Father, Son and Holy Spirit through the intercession of Mary and St. Joseph. Amen.
