It is Not Too Late to Give the Baby Jesus a Novena of Prayers

Traditionally a Novena is "a form of worship consisting of special prayers or services on nine successive days".  

However, tonight is Christmas Eve and there may be a feeling in your heart that you wished you could have done more leading up to Our Lord's Birth.  A desire to give him something special.  May I humbly suggest a nine hour novena.  On the top of each hour three Hail Mary's to be said for nine consecutive hours.   

In this way we can join with Our Blessed Mother in the patient waiting, the looking at the clock and anticipating the birth of a child.  This child is like no other and may our hearts join together in a special way with His Mother and Our Mother. 

I am planning to begin at 9AM EST but the starting hour is completely up to you.  

Thank you all and may you all have a Blessed Christmas Eve.
