Christmas Novena, Fourth Oration

O Wine of Virgins and Lily of Purity, Who by a touch
of Your hand heals the body and cleanses the soul; Who by dwelling in the womb
of Your Mother has made her the purest of the pure and most admirable among
virgins; We beseech You, through Your Pure Nativity and through the intercession
of Your Mother and Saint Joseph, Your Chosen One, to grant us to be pure in
soul and body and clean in act clean and thought, that we may serve You with a
clean heart and pure body all the days of our lives. Amen. 

Christmas Novena, Third Oration

O Admirable Leader Who gains the obedience of Your
people not by the severity of Your judgment but by the sweetness of Your love
and Your welcome sojourn among us. We beseech You, through Your Pure Nativity
and through the intercession of Your Mother and Saint Joseph, Your Chosen One,
to teach us complete obedience to Your holy commandments and to submit to our
superiors, not for fear of punishment but by a willing surrender of mind and
heart, with gladness of heart and spirit. Amen.

Christmas Novena, Second Oration

O Hope of the Patriarchs and longing of the Gentiles,
in Your Nativity You have granted us hope. The joy of this hope has called
together the Shepherds, the Magi and all believers in Your Holy Name, and led
them to adore You with all the acclaim of their hearts. We beseech You, through
Your Pure Nativity and through the intercession of Your Virgin Mother and Saint
Joseph, Your Chosen One, to keep us, by Your grace, from attachment to earthly
goods. Teach us not to depend only on ourselves and the weak ones of this
world, but to rely only on Your Fatherly direction and Your Divine Providence.
Attract our hearts and minds to reflect on Your heavenly riches and to aspire and
long for them above. Amen.

Christmas Novena, First Oration

O
Beautiful One in splendor, fairer than the children of this world, in Your
inexplicable love for us, You became a man to show us the invisible beauty of
Your Divinity in the splendor of Your visible body, which You have taken from
the Virgin Mary.  By this, You have attracted us to Your Divine Love, You,
Beloved of the Father and Only Delight of His Heart.


We beseech You, through
Your Pure Nativity and through the intercession of Your Virgin Mother and Saint
Joseph, Your Chosen One, to enkindle Your love in our hearts and enlighten our
minds with the rays of Your heavenly grace, that we may love You with our whole
heart and mind.  May we love everyone in You and for You, You, Who alone
are worthy of the love of all hearts. Amen.
