Thank you for joining us in praying the Christmas Novena! 

This novena will be dedicated to praying for an end to abortion, and for greater respect for the dignity of all human life! 
 
When contemplating the birth of our Savior and preparing for Christmas, it is a great time to pray for an end to abortion. After all, Christ came to us as a humble and vulnerable pre-born child.

Day 3 - The Christmas Novena

Today, let's pray for all the people who work to uphold the dignity of life in our culture. 
 
I know that it is not an easy job. 
 
How do I know? 
 
Well, I have worked full-time in the pro-life movement for nearly a decade helping to spread the message of life to college students in Illinois. 
 
Doing this work, I've been blessed to meet tons of pro-life heroes who have devoted years to helping mothers in need and saving lives of babies in the womb. 
 
Many of them do this work with little or no thanks or recognition. So, I want to ask you to pray for those who work with great love in this important ministry.
 
Please pray for their strength, courage and for more people to support them!

Today, let's pray for all mothers who have chosen life for their children -- especially for those who have chosen adoption for their children.

Day 7 - The Christmas Novena

Today, let us pray for all parents and godparents. They have an important role in bringing up a child who is brought into the world. 
 
Just like the Lord was presented in the temple, our children are presented in the Church for Baptism. There, parents and godparents take on the responsibility for bringing up a child in the faith. 
 
So, today we pray for all parents and godparents. We pray also for those children who have no one to present them in the Church for Baptism. We pray that God will eventually bring them to His family and that they may be welcomed with open arms!
