NOVENA TO THE
INFANT OF PRAGUE


Recite the following prayer for nine days...

The Prayer

Dearest Jesus,
tenderly loving us,
Your greatest joy is to dwell among us
and to bestow Your blessing upon us!
Though I am not worthy that You should behold me with love,
I feel myself drawn to You,
O dear Infant Jesus,
because You gladly pardon me
and exercise Your almighty power over me.
So many who turned with confidence to You
have received graces
and had their petitions granted.
Behold me, in spirit
I kneel before Your miraculous image
and lay open my heart to You,
with its prayers, petitions and hopes.
Especially the affair of

(State your intentions here...)

I enclose in Your loving Heart.
Govern me and do with me and mine
according to Your holy will,
for I know that in Your Divine wisdom
and love You will ordain everything for the best.
Almighty gracious Infant Jesus,
do not withdraw Your hand from us,
but protect and bless us forever.

I pray You, sweetest Infant,
in the name of Your Blessed Mother Mary
who cared for You with such tenderness
and by the great reverence
with which St. Joseph carried You in his arms,
comfort me and make me happy
that I may bless and thank You
forever from all my heart.
Amen.

The Novena

Eternal Father,
I offer to Your honor and glory,
for my eternal salvation
and for the salvation of the whole world,
the mystery of the birth of our Divine Redeemer.

Glory be...

Eternal Father,
I offer to Your honor and glory,
and for my eternal salvation
and that of the whole world,
the sufferings of the most holy Virgin
and St. Joseph on that long and weary journey
from Nazareth to Bethlehem,
and the anguish of their hearts
at not finding a place of shelter
when the Saviour of the world was about to be born.

Glory be...

Eternal Father,
I offer to Your honor and glory,
and for my eternal salvation
and that of the whole world,
the sufferings of Jesus in the manger
where He was born,
the cold He suffered,
the tears He shed
and His tender infant cries.

Glory be...

Eternal Father,
I offer to Your honor and glory,
and for my eternal salvation
and that of the whole world,
the pain which the Divine Child Jesus
felt in His tender Body
when He submitted to the rite of circumcision:
I offer You that Precious Blood
which He then first shed
for the salvation of all mankind.

Glory be...

Eternal Father,
I offer to Your honor and glory,
and for my eternal salvation
and that of the whole world,
the humility, mortification, patience,
charity and all the virtues of the Child Jesus;
I thank You, I love You,
and I bless You tenderly
for this ineffable mystery
of the Incarnation of the Word of God.

Glory be...

The Word was made Flesh,
And dwelt among us.

Let us pray,

O God, whose only-begotten Son
has appeared in the substance of our flesh;
grant, we beg You,
that through Him,
whom we acknowledge to have been outwardly like us,
we may deserve to be renewed in our inward selves.
Who lives and reigns with You
for ever and ever.

Amen.
