Please join CFN in a novena to the Holy Infant of Prague!
Various religious orders (among them the Carmelites, Dominicans and Redemptorists) make a monthly novena to the Infant Jesus from the 16-24. During this month, dedicated to the Holy Name of Jesus, join us in praying for the spiritual and temporal needs of Catholic Family News, and the success of our upcoming, annual conference in April. You are welcome to pray, of course, for your own special intentions. Remember the words of the Divine Infant to Venerable Fr. Cyril: “The more you honor Me, the more I will bless you!”
O dearest Jesus, tenderly loving us, Thy greatest joy is to dwell among men and to bestow Thy blessing upon us! Though I am not worthy that Thou shouldst behold me with love, I feel myself drawn to Thee, O dear Infant Jesus, because Thou dost gladly pardon me and exercise Thy almighty power over me. So many who turned with confidence to Thee have received graces and had their petitions granted. Behold me, in spirit I kneel before Thy miraculous image and lay open my heart to Thee, with its prayers, petitions and hopes. Especially the affair of… I enclose In Thy loving Heart. Govern me and do with me and mine according to Thy holy Will, for I know that in Thy Divine wisdom and love Thou willst ordain everything for the best. Almighty, gracious Infant Jesus, do not withdraw Thy hand from us, but protect and bless us forever. I pray Thee, sweetest Infant, in the Name of Thy blessed Mother, Mary, Who cared for Thee with such tenderness, and by the great reverence with which St. Joseph carried Thee in his arms; comfort me and make me happy that I may bless and thank Thee forever from all my heart. Amen.
