“This, in short, is the difference between us and others who know not God, that in misfortune they complain and murmur, while the adversity does not call us away from the truth of virtue and faith, but strengthens us by its suffering.” -St. Cyprian
“Do not fear what may happen tomorrow. The same loving Father who cares for you today will care for you tomorrow and every day. Either He will shield you from suffering, or He will give you unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace, then, and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginings.” -Saint Francis de Sales
“The greater and more persistent your confidence in God, the more abundantly you will receive all that you ask.” -Saint Albert the Great
“Those whose hearts are enlarged by confidence in God run swiftly on the path of perfection. They not only run, they fly; because, having placed all their hope in the Lord, they are no longer weak as they once were. They become strong with the strength of God, which is given to all who put their trust in Him.” -Saint Alphonsus Liguori
DAY 22 – 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.
