I am also offering up the intentions of a few friends who have special Crosses to bear at this time. In addition, I am including military soldiers who are deployed and their families who are separated.
Why pray a novena?
A novena reminds me of our journey through Advent and through our spiritual life as well.
"Whenever we undertake a novena of prayer, we are declaring that same supreme desire to wait for the promise, persevering with confidence until the end."
Be sure to visit Lena at JOYfilled Family to print the Christmas Novena that begins tomorrow (November 30), on the Feast of St. Andrew. She is so graciously offering beautiful prayer cards to print freely. Thank you, Lena!
May you receive many special Advent graces from novena prayers offered and received!
