Christmas Novena

Sorry that I forgot to post about the Christmas Novena, but it isn't too late to start yet. Some are still praying the St. Andrew's Christmas Novena that started on Nov. 30th, but this is a different Novena. Sorry again, but it isn't too late to start.

Thanks to Inspired Traditionalist for these prayers.

December 16: O Shepherd that rulest Israel, Thou that leadest Joseph like a sheep, come to guide and comfort us.One Our Father, one Hail Mary, and one Glory be

December 17: O Wisdom that comest out of the mouth of the Most High, that reachest from one end to another, and orderest all things mightily and sweetly, come to teach us the way of prudenceOne Our Father, one Hail Mary, and one Glory be.
