The Covenant of Incarnation: A Novena Reflection

I have given Thee to be the light of the Gentiles, that Thou mayest be My salvation
even to the farthest part of the earth. — Isaiah 49:6.

Consider that the Eternal Father addressed these words to the Infant Jesus at the instant of his conception: I have given Thee to be the light of the Gentiles, that Thou mayest be My salvation.

Let Us Pray Together as We Await the Birth of Christ

Advent is the perfect time to join Catholics around the world in prayer. According to the Enchiridion of Indulgences, “A partial indulgence is granted to the faithful, who devoutly take part in the pious exercise of a public novena before the feast of Christmas or Pentecost or the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary.”

Join us in praying this novena every day from December 16–24, and share your intentions with other Verbum users on Twitter and Facebook.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Hail and blessed be the hour and moment in which the Son of God was born of the most pure Virgin Mary at midnight, in Bethlehem, in the piercing cold.

In that hour vouchsafe, I beseech Thee, O my God,  to hear my prayer and grant my desires, [here mention your request] through the merits of Our Savior Jesus Christ and of his blessed Mother.

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

Amen.
