Christmas Novena ~ Day 2 ~

17 December:

O Wisdom that comest out of the mouth of the Most High,
that reachest from one end to another,
and orderest all things mightily and sweetly,
come to teach us the way of prudence!

1 Our Father..1 Hail Mary..1 Glory Be

Divine Infant,
after the wonders of Thy Holy Birth in Bethlehem,
Thou wished to extend Thy infinite Mercy to the whole world
by calling the Wise Men by heavenly inspiration to Thy crib,
which was in this way changed into a royal throne.
Thou graciously received those holy men
who were obedient to the Divine call
and hastened to Thy feet.
They recognized and worshiped Thee as Prince of Peace,
the Redeemer of mankind,
and the very Son of God.

Show us also Thy goodness and almighty power.
Enlighten our minds,
strengthen our wills,
and inflame our hearts to know Thee,
to serve Thee,
and to love Thee in this life,
that we may merit to find our joy in Thee eternally in the life to come.

O Jesus, most powerful Child,
I implore Thee again to help me:
(here our intention..)
Divine Child, great omnipotent God,
I implore through Thee most Holy Mother's most powerful intercession,
and through the boundless mercy of Thy omnipotence as God,
for a favorable answer to my prayer during this Novena.
Grant me the grace of possessing Thee eternally
with Mary and Joseph
and of adoring Thee with Thy Holy Angels and Saints. Amen

Let us always remember the Poor Souls

Eternal Father, I offer You the most precious blood of thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, for those in my own home and in my family. Amen

Prayer for the Conversion of Scandinavia

300 Days, once a day. (See Instructions.) 54 Leo XIII, April 18, 1885.

O good Jesus , prostrate at Thy feet, we humbly implore Thee, by thy most Sacred Wounds and by the Precious Blood which Thou didst shed for the salvation of the whole world, that Thou wouldst deign to cast a look of pity on the peoples of Scandinavia, seduced from the Faith for so many centuries, and plunged in the darkness of heresy, separated from thy Church, deprived of the participation of the adorable Sacrament of thy Body and Blood, and of the other sacraments instituted by Thee, as the refuge of souls in life and in death.

Remember, O Redeemer of the world, that for these souls too Thou didst suffer bitter death, with the loss of all thy blood. Bring back, O good Shepherd, these wandering sheep ofthine to the one fold and to the healthy pastures of thy Church, so that they may form with us one flock , tended by Thee, and by thy Vicar on earth, the supreme Pontiff, whom, in the person of the Apostle St Peter, Thou didst commission to feed thy sheep and thy lambs. Graciously hear, O good Jesus, the prayers which we offer Thee with the most lively trust in the love of thy Sacred Heart, and to thy most Holy Name be praise, glory, and honor, world without end. Amen.
