A Novena to Our Lady of Walsingham – Day 3

DAY 3: THE BIRTH OF OUR LORD

Opening prayer: We fly to thy protection, O holy Mother of God. Despise not our petitions in our necessities, but deliver us from all dangers O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.
Intention of the day: For the protection and sanctity of life, and for families
Reflection: “The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us” (Jn 1:14). For our sake and for our salvation he came down from Heaven, Emmanuel, God-with-us. His presence blessed and sanctified the life of an earthly home, and made of it his Heaven, so that the family becomes a place of security, love and peace. He humbled himself to share our humanity that we might share his divinity.
Prayer: Father in heaven, creator of all, in history’s moment when all was ready, you sent your Son to dwell among us, the Word made flesh, Emmanuel. Teach us to respect the dignity of marriage, and to uphold the sanctity of human life from the moment of conception to natural death, and that our homes may reflect the love of the Holy Family.
Intention: We pray for the protection of all life from the moment of conception to natural death and pray that a culture respecting the sanctity of life, marriage and family may once again prevail in our country and communities.
Our Father … Hail Mary … Glory be … Our Lady of Walsingham, pray for us.
