As we approach the celebration of the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ, let us pause from the distractions of the world and focus upon the eternal. A concentration on the personage of the Word Made Flesh, the Infant of Bethlehem, whom we know has rent the veil of enmity between us and Almighty God, and through whom our prayers will unquestionably be answered. I beseech all reading this to pray in the name of the Infant Jesus that this will be the last Christmas that will see a separation of Catholic Anglicans and all other Catholics in visible communion with the See of Peter. Let us pray that the resulting concord will present to all people the truth of a unified, objective Faith. A Faith that exists in a Church that is truly, plainly, and ever One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic. A Church that displays certainly that the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us.
Let us pray!
O, Child Jesus, we have recourse to Thee. Through Thy holy Mother, we implore Thee assist us in this, our necessity; for we firmly believe that Thou canst aid us. We confidently hope to obtain Thy holy grace. We love Thee with all of our hearts and with all of our souls. We are heartily sorry for our sins and we entreat Thee, O good Jesus, to give us strength to overcome them.
We are firmly resolved never to offend Thee again, and to suffer everything rather than displease Thee. Henceforth, we wish to serve Thee faithfully. For love of Thee, O Divine Child, we will love our neighbor as ourselves. O Jesus, omnipotent Child, we entreat Thee again to come to our assistance in this necessity of an expeditious, visible reunion of all who profess true Catholic faith and order. Grant that we may possess Thee eternally, with Mary and Joseph, and adore Thee with Thy holy angels and saints in heaven. Amen.
Revealed by the Blessed Virgin Mary to the Venerable Fr. Cyril of the Mother of God, O.C.D., at Prague.
