It is becoming an annual tradition for us to help the great Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest with their fundraising novena. The following was sent to us by the ICR:
Join us in this New Year of 2015 as we embark on a spiritual pilgrimage to Bethlehem, emulating the actions of Three Magi on the feast of the Epiphany. Through the novena to the Infant King, let us celebrate and meditate upon the Holy birth of Our Savior, God’s giving of His Only Son, and how we can pay homage and adoration to our Earthly and Heavenly King. With this in mind, please join us at the Shrine of Christ the King and participate in the monthly novena from January 17th to January 25th. The Christ Child has promised us: “The more you honor Me, the more I will bless you!”
“And entering into the house, they found the child with Mary his mother, and falling down they adored him; and opening their treasures, they offered him gifts; gold, frankincense, and myrrh.”- Matthew2:11
The Three Wise Men and Shepherds brought gifts to the Child Jesus at His birth… What gift will you bring Him? This New Year, be sure to offer the Infant King your prayers and present Him with a candle or a flower as a visible symbol of your love, devotion and thanksgiving.
- Submit your prayer offerings online and have your intentions remembered along with those of others throughout the world.
- Offer thanks by presenting an Ex Voto message of Thanksgiving to the Infant King. Through this ancient tradition, read stories from people who have received God’s graces through the novena to the Infant King.
- Read our monthly meditation which will provide you with spiritual insight to grow step by step in the virtues of the Christ Child. January’s meditation is on the Spiritual Poverty: Key to Heavenly Riches.
