PLEASE NOTE: For many, this day is full of celebration and love. Don’t be too hard on yourself if this big day causes you to limit your Heavenly Christmas plans. This is a very special family holiday. Give your best Fruit of the Holy Spirit to your loved ones! Rest up, because our Church Militant Bootcamp starts on Monday, which begins the last half of our 54-Day Heavenly Christmas!
“For faith is the beginning and the end is love, and God is the two of them brought into unity. After these comes whatever else makes up a Christian gentleman.” -St. Ignatius of Antioch
“Faith means battles; if there are no contests, it is because there are none who desire to contend.” -St. Ambrose “Faith does not quench desire, but inflames it.” -St. Thomas Aquinas
“A faint faith is better than a strong heresy.” -St. Thomas More
“It is not the actual physical exertion that counts toward a man’s progress, nor the nature of the task, but the spirit of faith with which it is undertaken.” -St. Francis Xavier
DAY 24 – 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.
