A Friend close to the Institute of Christ the King, Sovereign Priest sent in this Novena of Gratitude to the Christ Child. It seems like a fitting thing to do in preparation for the great feasts of All Saints and All Souls.
Glory to Our King:
Novena of Gratitude to the Christ Child
From October 23 to October 31, the Institute of Christ the King invites everyone to join in a special spiritual opportunity: Giving Glory to Our King: Novena of Gratitude to the Christ Child. This prayer campaign aims to increase faith, hope, and gratitude to our Infant King.
What can I do?
Give glory to God daily, from October 23 to 31,
by praying the Novena Prayer
to our Infant King.
O Divine Infant Jesus, I have recourse to Thee. Please, through Thy Blessed Mother, assist me with this necessity (Give Him your intentions). Because I firmly believe that Thy divinity can help me, I hope with confidence to obtain Thy holy grace. I love Thee with all my heart and with all the strength of my soul.
I repent sincerely of my sins, and I beg Thee, O good Jesus, to grant me the strength to triumph over them. I resolve nevermore to offend Thee, and I come to offer myself to Thee with the intention of enduring everything rather than to displease Thee. Henceforth, I desire to serve Thee with fidelity, and for the love of Thee, O Divine Infant, I will love my neighbor as myself.
All-powerful Infant, O Jesus, I implore Thee again: assist me with this need. Grant me the grace of possessing Thee eternally with Mary and Joseph and of adoring Thee with the angels in the heavenly court. Amen.
