Dear dad, mom or loving relative of the participating children. A novena consists of nine days of prayer in which one asks God for a particular blessing. Novenas are a lovely method to develop daily prayer that is intentional, consistent, and persistent. We invite you to live the contents of this book with the children once a day beginning on December 16 in order to better familiarize them with the traditional novena of Christmas and in this way live a Christmas learning with the Baby Jesus. Be aware that this book is intended to complement the Christmas novena, not to replace it. For the children, you’ll find the consideration of each day on these pages, some simple questions and the activity of the day.
