Christmas Novena – Day 3

Initial Prayer

It is with joy that we announce the message of Christmas: God became man, He came to live among us.

God is not far away: He is close. Furthermore, He is “Emmanuel”, God-with-us. He is not a stranger: He has a face, the face of Jesus.

Let us pray that this Christmas the face of Jesus may be contemplated by all families and by all men on earth.

Day 3

“Let’s go to Bethlehem.” (Lk 2, 15)

The Church, like the Virgin Mary, offers Jesus, the Son to the world, which she herself received as a gift, and who came to free man from the bondage of sin.

Like Mary, the Church is not afraid, because that Child is her strength. We as the militant Church, must offer Him to all who seek Him with a sincere heart.

Today, the Church says to all humanity, deeply marked by a serious moral crisis, the same phrase of the pastors: “Let’s go to Bethlehem” and there we will find our hope.

Closing Prayer

In the silence of that night in Bethlehem, Jesus was born and lovingly welcomed.

Who is ready to open their heart this Christmas?

Who watches, in the night of doubt and uncertainty, with a heart awake and in prayer?

Who awaits for the dawn of the new day, keeping the flame of faith lit?

Who has time to listen to His words and be fascinated by His love?

Christ comes to bring light to us. He comes to give us peace, too!

Yes, His message of peace is for everyone, it is for everyone who comes to offer himself as a sure hope of salvation.
