  • The Christmas Novena

    12/15/2005 6:02:00 PM PST · by NYer · 37 replies · 883+ views
    Catholics in many cultures have prayed the Christmas Novena (nine consecutive days of prayer), from December 16-24. It is a devotion well worth reviving, particularly in young families, for it focuses attention intensely on our expectation of the Coming King, and helps to prepare us spiritually to receive him into our hearts. The Directory on Popular Piety and the Liturgy (on theVatican web site) comments on the background of the Christmas Novena, and suggests the use of the "O Antiphons" (see below) in the celebration of the Liturgy of the Hours, at Vespers: "103. The Christmas novena began as...

    Back in September I took the liberty of starting a thread inviting all to pray for the election. Well, that didn't work out so well, maybe. But I am am still asking us to consider ADDING something to our daily prayers. I know you all are busy and I suspect many of you spend a good deal of time in prayer anyway. I do not seek to bind burdens on anyone's back. Though prayer sometimes involves teeth-gritting, that should not be the main theme! The main themes should always be hope, joy, and gratitude, IMHO. But the prayer of a...

    Clearly we need to seek, to beg God's help in the coming election. I invite all to join in a "Novena" -- a LONG one -- with just such an intention. If you start on 9/11 (!) and pray for 56 days, you end the day before election day. If you start on 9/13 and pray for 54 days... you do the math. :-) I am asking us to consider ADDING something to our daily prayers.

    Jesus asked that the Feast of the Divine Mercy be preceded by a Novena to the Divine Mercy which would begin on Good Friday. He gave St. Faustina an intention to pray for on each day of the Novena, saving for the last day the most difficult intention of all, the lukewarm and indifferent of whom He said: "These souls cause Me more suffering than any others; it was from such souls that My soul felt the most revulsion in the Garden of Olives. It was on their account that I said: 'My Father, if it is possible, let...

It is still the only novena officially prescribed by the Church.

    America Needs Fatima blog ^ | 5/15/2009 | Robert Ritchie
    The origins of devotion to Our Lady, under the invocation Help of Christians dates back to 1571. In that crucial year, Christians and Turks met in the largest naval battle ever. The great Pope Saint Pius V had labored for years to get the Catholic League together and in fighting shape. On October 7, 1571, 210 Catholic ships, mostly Spanish and Venetians, opposed 290 Turkish ships. The Catholics won a spectacular victory under the leadership of the Spanish Prince Juan of Austria. The Catholic descriptions of the battle differ from the Turkish in one main point: Muslim sources say during...

    Like a lot of people, I've gotten e-mails and notices about a FOCA novena tied to the inauguration and the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. But now the USCCB has taken the unusual step of alerting Catholics to the fact that the novena isn't entirely accurate: Officials at the Pro-life Secretariat of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) have issued statements seeking to correct “misleading” information provided in a widely-circulated announcement for a novena to stop FOCA. The officials insisted that the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) would not pass immediately after President-elect Obama takes office, but they reaffirmed...

    The Immaculate Conception: A Marvelous Theme Written by Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira    Sunday, December 19 2004 ( Last Updated Thursday, May 29 2008 ) This year the Church celebrates the 150th anniversary of the proclamation of the Dogma of the Immaculate Conception which affirms that Mary was conceived without Original Sin. For centuries, the Immaculate Conception of Our Lady was defended by saints, theologians and laymen. However, it took centuries of theological debate to establish a consensus in the Church. Only in 1854, did Blessed Pope Pius IX, after consulting with the bishops of the whole world, proclaim this...

I strongly urge every one of you to make a Novena and pray the Rosary to Our Lady of Victory between October 27th and Election Day, November 4th.

    Among the most important titles we have in the Catholic Church for the Blessed Virgin Mary are Our Lady of Victory and Our Lady of the Rosary. These titles can be traced back to one of the most decisive times in the history of the world and Christendom. The Battle of Lepanto took place on October 7 (date of feast of Our Lady of Rosary), 1571. This proved to be the most crucial battle for the Christian forces against the radical Muslim navy of Turkey. Pope Pius V led a procession around St. Peters Square in Vatican City praying the...

This Novena is the same one that Padre Pio prayed daily for the intentions of all those who came to him for help. It is entitled "Efficacious Novena to the Sacred Heart" because of its great power. I know, because I have experienced it. I will start the Novena today, and complete it on September 11th.

No, mercy is love's response to suffering. When mercy encounters suffering, it ultimately seeks to alleviate it. God the Father is so "rich in mercy" (Eph 2:4) that Paul calls him "the...
