Father Bozada: Pray To Be Open To Emmanuel In Our Midst.

My Dear People,

Emmanuel translates, “God with us”. What a beautiful reminder that Our Father in Heaven never leaves us, even when we abandon Him. Jesus, present in all the tabernacles of the world, reigns in our midst. The Holy Spirit comes to live in our very soul. How blessed are we to have the Trinity come to dwell with us.

In the manger, the Virgin presents Her Child to us. As we draw close to the stable of Our Lord, may we have a great desire to embrace Him with great love. Such intense love, Our Lady has for Her Son Jesus. Mary teaches us how to cradle the Child Jesus in the manger of our hearts. Pray to be open to Emmanuel in our midst. Ask Our Blessed Mother to teach you how to welcome the Saviour in our presence.

Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,
Fr. Mark Bozada

As our celebration of Christmas draws nearer, may we be more deeply aware that every gift is from God, and He alone is the owner and ruler of all things.

Eight Day Novena prayer to the Christ Child

O Holy Son of God, You became a man, in order to make yourself known by mankind. But where is the love that men give to you in return?

You have given your Precious Blood to save our souls. Why then is that man is so ungrateful for such a gift? And I, too, have returned such ingratitude.

I love you, O precious Infant in the Manger, O Word Incarnate, make me grateful for Your Infinite and Divine Mercy. Allow me to look upon You in the crib surrounded by such simple gifts of nature. Grant that I may always have the desire to be so pure and simple of heart. AMEN…

(1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary, 1 Glory Be to be prayed after each novena offering)

  • Father for give us for we have sinned seen and un-seen sins, also forgive our aniquity sins. So that you may hear this prayer! Please pray for me and my family! For God to remove what ever seperate’s us from his love. In a way that no one will know we were ever away from his love. Going un-noticed!Except that, noticed of Gods love in us and his will. That Gods will always prevails in us, all his way not ours. That we set up a room of worship to God in our homes! For him to be with us on earth!! Thank You god for these prayers asked by the Catholic Churches!! I so needed to know you have not left me. When hated by this world for your will abanded by all of this world!! And its Love that you have stayed and never stopped loving me!! Galeane Theriot! Registered Dental Assistant. All over U.S.A
