CHRISTMAS NOVENA


[Say this Novena beginning on the 16 th of December and ending on the 24 th of December. This Novena, though it starts one day earlier than the O Antiphons, correlates with the O Antiphons in the titles used to address Jesus between the 17 th and the 24 the of December. It would, therefore, make a good Novena to pray when your family prays the O Antiphons.]
