“Joy is a net of love by which we catch souls.” -Mother Teresa
“Joy is very infectious; therefore, be always full of joy.” -Mother Teresa
“We are at Jesus’ disposal. If he wants you to be sick in bed, if he wants you to proclaim his work in the street, if he wants you to clean the toilets all day, that’s all right, everything is all right. We must say, ‘I belong to you. you can do whatever you like.’ And this is our strength. This is the joy of the Lord.” -Mother Teresa
“Let the brothers ever avoid appearing gloomy, sad, and clouded, like the hypocrites; but let one ever be found joyous in the Lord, gay, amiable, gracious, as is meet.” -St. Francis
DAY 17 – 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 Manual.
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.
