You suggest: Devotion to the Infant King, and rebuilding His Shrine in Chicago

The following was given to us by the ICR's Shrine of Christ the King:

Veni Veni, Emmanuel!

Join us, the Institute's Shrine of Christ the King, this Holy Advent season as we embark on a powerful and spiritual pilgrimage to Bethlehem through the deeply rooted Christmas novena to the Infant King. As we prepare for the coming of Our Savior, let us meditate upon His Holy birth, God’s giving of His Only Son, and how we can pay homage and adoration to our Earthly and Heavenly King. 

Now that the historic Infant King statue has been newly restored after last year’s devastating fire and has returned to His home in Chicago, please joyfully and spiritually join the Shrine of Christ the King by participating in the monthly novena to the Infant King from December 17th to December 25th. Through appreciative and jubilant prayers, help us rebuild and restore a glorious home for the Infant King! 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 Christmas season, 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
