The Right Way to Pray the Christmas Novena + Mary, Hope of the World and Fra Bartholomew's Miraculous Fresco
Have you started praying the St. Andrew Christmas Novena yet? It's not too late to catch up! Listen to this podcast to make sure you understand how to offer this unique and powerful bouquet of prayers, so that, like Mary at the Nativity of Jesus or again at the Wedding Feast of Cana, you too can bring the healing power of the Word into the world.
We are called to share, like Mary, in the mission of the One Mediator between God and Man: Jesus Christ (cf. 1 Tim 2:5); for, as St. Paul writes in his First Letter to Timothy (2:1-2): "First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgiving be offered for everyone, especially for kings and all those in authority, so that we may lead tranquil and quiet lives in all godliness and dignity." So, let's get praying and interceding for one another! Let's bring the power of the Word to the world!
