PLEASE NOTE: Today we begin adding Section #2 of your Strength & Alliance Journal. Again, we do not want to derail by overloading, so realize this just means we are adding a section that helps us keep track of prayer intentions while understanding the most efficacious way to offer those intentions. Let’s be hungry for souls!!
“In so far as divine love beautifies our souls and makes us pleasing to his divine Majesty, it is called grace; in so far as it gives us strength to do good, it is called charity; but when it reaches such a degree of perfection, that it makes us not only do the good, but do so carefully, frequently, and readily, then it is called devotion.” -St. Francis de Sales
“Charity and devotion differ no more, the one from the other, than the flame from the fire.” -St. Francis de Sales
“Devotion is a certain act of the will by which man gives himself promptly to divine service.” -St. Thomas Aquinas
DAY 14 – HEAVENLY CHRISTMAS NOVENA
Let’s give the gift of Heaven and continue building our Holy Alliance! Also, let’s pray in the most efficacious way for those in need here on earth!
We are now using Sections One & Two of your Strength & Alliance Field Journal.
Also, remember to pray your daily rosary today, as we ask Our Lady for her intercession that we have the resolve to hang tough and press on throughout these 54 days. These 54 days are about learning and solidifying these very powerful spiritual practices in our lives. Satan does not want you spiritually strong, united and disciplined, so brush off all of the excuses he plants in your head and stand firm.
SECTION #1 (Begins on page 28): Continue building your Holy Alliance as you pray with another Saint to obtain a Plenary (Partial) Indulgence for another Holy Soul in Purgatory.
SECTION #2 (Begins on page 74):
STEP ONE: Write the name of the person who needs a special prayer in the “Comrade in Need” column.
STEP TWO: Write your specific prayer request for them in the “Prayer Request” column.
STEP THREE: Pray the Efficacious “Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus” (pg. 72) and place a check next to “Pio Prayer.”
STEP FOUR: After some time has passed, write how God answered the prayer in the “Glory Report” column. Always keep in mind that God knows best what is needed in a given situation to fulfill our ultimate goal of being with Him in heaven.
