The Way of Bethlehem

This can be prayed for the novena of Christmas by setting up 12 stations as you would for the Stations of the Cross and by making a candlelight procession to each station reciting the prayers.

Text Source: The Incarnation, Birth, and Infancy of Jesus Christ, or, The Mysteries of the Faith by St. Alphonsus Liguori

Note: The following text is from the above link, except for some changes where I have chosen instead to follow an adaption as it appears in The Transalpine Redemptorist Christmas Book,
Silent Night II, which was where I initially discovered this lovely prayer.  I use Silent Night II to read the prayers from for the novena, using the printable picture booklet available below for the station pictures.  Silent Night II also contains many hymns which I have made youtube lists for:
Advent Hymns  -  Christmas Hymns
The Way of Bethlehem 2010   The Way of Bethlehem 2015 (These are pictures from the Transalpine Redemptorists blog)

Printable Picture Booklet - The Way of Bethlehem

Note:  I recommend printing the above booklet at a print shop as it will use lots of ink.  It is also worth the effort to get a good quality print.

The Son of God becomes an Infant


The Annunciation,Tommaso del Mazza  Source: Wikimedia

O Jesus, born of Virgin bright,
Immortal glory be to Thee;
Praise to the Father Infinite,
And Holy Ghost eternally.

V. Christ is at hand.
R. Come let us worship Him.

Consider how the Son of God, the Infinite Majesty, the Creator of the world, Who stands in need of no one became Incarnate to save lost man by His sufferings, and was for nine months enclosed as a little Infant in the most chaste womb of Mary.

O most amiable Infant Jesus, God and Man, it was Thy burning love for me which urged Thee to undergo all this. I give Thee thanks; and I beseech Thee, by Thy Incarnation, to give me the grace ever to correspond with such great goodness.

O my sweetest Love, I am sorry that I have offended Thee. I desire to be always faithful in Thy service: enkindle in me Thy love: make me chaste and holy.

O Mary, grant that I may belong entirely to thee and to thy Son Jesus.

Hail Mary, Glory be...

V. May Thy most amiable Heart, O Jesus, be ever blessed and glorified.
R. Together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Consider how Jesus at his birth has not even a wretched cabin, such as the poorest have; but is born in a cold stable, and is laid in a manger upon straw.

O most holy Infant Jesus, I thank Thee for all the pains which Thou didst will to suffer for me. I beseech Thee, by Thy most poor and bitter birth, grant that I may reap the fruits of Thy coming on this earth.


O my sweetest Love, I am sorry that I have offended Thee. I desire to be always faithful in Thy service: enkindle in me Thy love: make me chaste and holy.

Consider how the Omnipotent God, Who feeds both man and beast, is become a little Child and turns to His Virgin Mother for nourishment. How truly wonderful! He Who feeds the birds of the air is completely dependent upon His creatures.

O most lovely Infant, Thou takes food in order to nourish Thy sacred Body which is one day to be tortured, scourged and bruised for us. I thank Thee for this goodness; and I beseech Thee grant me the grace to act always with a pure intention of pleasing Thee, even as Thou didst ever act with the sole aim of obtaining my eternal happiness.

Consider how the Infant Jesus is visited and adored by the Magi, who, though Gentiles, by the light of faith acknowledge Him as the Incarnate God, and Saviour of all men, and offer Him gold, frankincense and myrrh.

Most amiable Redeemer, I too have received from Thee this great gift of faith. I thank Thee for it; and I beseech Thee, by the glory of this Thy manifestation, grant that, like the Magi, I may correspond and be faithful to Thy grace.

O my sweetest Love, I am sorry that I have offended Thee. I desire to be always faithful in Thy service: enkindle in me Thy love: make me chaste and holy.

And Holy Ghost eternally.

V. Christ is at hand.
R. Come let us worship Him.

Consider how Herod, fearing that Jesus would deprive him of his throne, plans His death, and to this end commands that all the male infants of Bethlehem and the neighbourhood be murdered. The most Blessed Virgin, however, being warned by an angel, carries her Divine Son into Egypt.

O dearest Infant, what sufferings didst Thou not endure in this long journey, undertaken in the depths of winter and through regions almost wholly deserted! How often wast Thou drenched with rain and benumbed with cold! How many nights didst Thou pass in the open air! I thanks Thee; and I beseech Thee by Thy painful flight to give me strength to avoid all the dangers of eternal death.

O my sweetest Love, I am sorry that I have offended Thee. I desire to be always faithful in Thy service: enkindle in me Thy love: make me chaste and holy.

V. Christ is at hand.
R. Come let us worship Him.

Consider how some months after the Birth of the Infant Jesus, His Blessed Mother loosens the swaddling-bands and thus releases His little hands hitherto bound.

Most tender Infant, I imagine to myself that first moment when Thou didst join Thy little hands, and lifting up Thy Divine eyes to Heaven didst intercede with the Eternal Father in my behalf. I give Thee thanks; and I beseech Thee to grant by the merits of Thy power, that my prayers may be always pleasing and acceptable in Thy sight.

O my sweetest Love, I am sorry that I have offended Thee. I desire to be always faithful in Thy service: enkindle in me Thy love: make me chaste and holy.

O Mary, grant that I may belong entirely to thee and to thy Son Jesus.

O Jesus, born of Virgin bright,
Immortal glory be to Thee;
Praise to the Father Infinite,
And Holy Ghost eternally.

V. Christ is at hand.
R. Come let us worship Him.

Consider how the Infant Jesus as He advances in age begins to walk, and then pictures to Himself all the roads He must traverse, the many journeys He will make in Judea, while preaching salvation there, and, finally, the way up to the summit of Mount Calvary, where He will sacrifice His life for our salvation.

O most loving Jesus, I thank Thee. I beseech Thee by Thy first steps to strengthen me in grace that I may always walk in the path of holiness and never depart from the way of salvation Thou hast shown me.
O my sweetest Love, I am sorry that I have offended Thee. I desire to be always faithful in Thy service: enkindle in me Thy love: make me chaste and holy.

R. Come let us worship Him.

Consider how the Infant Jesus in the lowly house of His Mother Mary takes His rest upon a poor little bed of straw, and sometimes even sleeps on the bare ground.
O most amiable Infant Jesus, Thou hast slept, but in Thy sleep Thy Heart was watchful; It loved me, It was mindful of me, It gathered solace from all the favours and tokens of love Thou gavest me. I am most grateful to Thee and I beg Thee by Thy loving slumber cause me so to live that I may never fail in love for Thee, my most amiable God.

O my sweetest Love, I am sorry that I have offended Thee. I desire to be always faithful in Thy service: enkindle in me Thy love: make me chaste and holy.

Consider how the Infant Jesus like a little fisherman with a hook in His hand wishes to catch our hearts. By His beauty, by the tokens of His tender affection, by His sweet and holy attractions He tries to draw us to His love.
O Divine Infant, I thank Thee. I beseech Thee by the loving zeal with which Thou seeks to win our hearts to Thee, grant me the grace never to desert Thee, but always to be loyal in Thy service and united to Thee by the bonds of a perfect love.

O my sweetest Love, I am sorry that I have offended Thee. I desire to be always faithful in Thy service: enkindle in me Thy love: make me chaste and holy.

CONCLUDING PRAYER

To Thee, O most sweet Infant Jesus, I offer the steps I have just made in veneration of the sacred mysteries of Thy Infancy. I humbly implore Thee to accept this my homage, though unworthy in itself, as a feeble return for Thy boundless goodness and mercy. And deign, O my Infant Jesus, to grant me in reward those virtues which are characteristic of Thy Infancy, namely purity, humility, and simplicity. Prepare my poor heart as a dwelling pleasing in Thy sight. Adorn it with Thy holy virtues. Thus may I be acceptable to Thee in this life and forever united with Thee in eternity. Amen.

Eleusa, Circle of Andreas Ritzos, second half of the 15th C  Source: Wikimedia

"If we would please this Divine Infant, we too must become children, simple and humble; we must carry to Him flowers of virtue, of meekness, of mortification, of charity; we must clasp Him in the arms of our love."  [St. Alphonsus]

First Holy Communion and Confirmation Links and Resources


I will add to this post over the next few days but I'm wanting to share resources asap (the videos in particular) with fellow parishioners who are preparing their children for First Holy Communion and Confirmation this Sunday.  I have two for First Holy Communion and two for Confirmation.  Prayers for all those receiving the sacraments will be much appreciated! Thank you!   :)

First Holy Communion

My First Holy Communion Pinterest Board


Video's
These videos are quite long so depending on your child's age you may wish to break them up into shorter sessions.  These would also be good refresher courses for Confirmation and, while they are for children, most adults will likely find them interesting too.


Books
My First Communion by Bishop Morrow  (Downloadable pdf from Archive)  I have this in a more modern version that is falling apart, with several pages being lost, so I was please to find it available for download.  I don't like the pictures as much as the edition I have but the text is the same.

The Wildest of Adventures

 'I have never understood what people mean by domesticity 
[life at home taking care of your house and family] 
being tame, it seems to me one of the wildest of adventures'  
G. K. Chesterton




Eighteen years ago today my eldest child was born shortly after midnight on All Hallows Eve.  It had been a short but exciting labour.  I spent not quite four hours in hospital before she was born.  

What a fun time it all had been, the pregnancy and labour.  Morning sickness hadn't been too hard because I was so happy to be pregnant.  The first flutters of her movement a thrill.  The utterly amazing experience of my growing tummy and the life within.  I continued to work up until the last month before I was due.  I prepared all the things needed in preparation for her birth.  Cuddly blankets, a cot, tiny little hats, tiny socks, and tiny baby suits and oh so much more that was so fun to buy.   

But nothing really quite prepares you for the moment you meet your first child.  

The stars stretched out across the sky that night as we drove to the hospital with me in labour.  We carried within us that mixture of solemness and joy that the impending birth of a baby can bring.  We parked at the wrong entrance to the hospital (closed after hours) and decided to walk slowly and with some pauses for contractions, toward the main hospital entrance, instead of parking closer.  

We found the labour ward easily and the midwife took us to a waiting room initially, and then to a labour room.  I tried out various 'things to do in labour' that I had read about and learned in the prenatal labour classes we had gone to.  

It finally reached a point where I thought I can't do this much longer, I'm going to need pain relief, help!  (I had hoped not to need pain relief)

The midwife said, 'you'll be at least 6 more hours yet'.

'Really!'  I thought to myself, plus 'little baby, you'd better come right now!'  And she did.

Within minutes it became apparent that baby had listened and was on her way.  They gave me some gas but it wasn't until later I found out that I didn't use it properly and so it had had no effect.  

She quickly went 'into distress' and the room filled with doctors and medical staff.  

Not long after she was born.

My sweet little baby, in my arms.  So amazing to believe that she was actually mine.    

I was in the hospital for five days before they let us go.

When it came time to leave the hospital I remember looking at her in her bassinet, sleeping at last.     Reality was coming swiftly as tiredness and the aches and pains of being a mum with a newborn set in.  I felt overawed with responsibility.  The journey had already been begun but I paused for a frantic moment and mentally surveyed what was ahead and all it would mean both then and in the future...
How would I know what to do?  What did I know about caring for a baby?  And, she was going to depend on us, not somebody else!  If motherhood had been an idea up to that point I accepted the reality of it at that moment, daunting as it was.  A very excited Dh came and finally took us home.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I was pretty much raised an atheist as a girl.  I was one of 5 siblings and I thought our family was big.  I certainly didn't know of any families bigger than ours.  If you'd told me that some people have 10 children, or even more, I would have been shocked.

I dreamed of having my own children someday.  I even looked through my mums baby-name book trying to decided what they would be named.  I must have been about nine or so.

Four children.   That's what I planned on having.

As I got older I lost interest in having children.  If you had pressed me at this point I might have agreed that maybe two children might be okay.  But in the distant future.  No time frame was in my mind.

In my early 20's atheism started to ring hollow.  I became open to believing in God.  I prayed for the first time.  An earnest prayer.  What for?  Of all things for a good husband.  Not just 'a husband', but a 'good one'.  When I think back on that now I have only one word that comes to mind about that.  Grace.  What a grace filled moment!

Almost immediately I met my future husband.  He challenged me to look into Christianity properly, and so I did.  I recognised him as the answer to my prayer and we got married in a protestant church.  About a year later came a moment that changed the course of both of our lives again.  We converted to the Catholic faith.  Little did we really know, even then, what was begun.  How blessed were.  Reflecting upon it, 19 years later, it brings me to happy tears.  I cannot put into words my gratefulness in discovering Christ's one true Church.  Less than a year later our first born arrived, that wonderful All Hallow's Eve.

As Catholics we became open to having however many children God wanted for us.  After our baby girl came a boy a few years later.  One of each, surely that was enough people said.  Then came another girl and after that a boy.  Now we really aught to 'stop' we were told.  And another girl, and another boy came.  'There are ways to prevent this', we heard from some.  Add another boy and another girl and we are up to date.  That's four girls and four boys, a total of eight children.  It doesn't feel like 'lots'.  I'm soon to be 44 and yes, if God sends us more what a joy that would be.

No, motherhood isn't easy.  The anxiety I had for those few moments in hospital after the birth of my first born was not without warrant.  What an awesome responsibility it is to be a parent.  You need all the grace you can get!

But it is there for the asking.

With God's grace my heart has changed over the years.  I have discovered a joy in family life that I never knew existed, that I might never have known existed but for my conversion to Catholicism.

I have wanted to write this post for sometime now.  But just couldn't think how to put together all the thoughts which I want to relate.  I think I will write several more posts yet, to try to share some things that I have been long wanting to say.  But the essence of what I want to say in this post is this.

In becoming a parent, in family life, and most especially and importantly in living with God at the centre of our lives and aided by His grace, I have been having the time of my life.  I am so very thankful for every one of my beautiful children.  They are my great joy!  Far from being boring and dull as some would have us believe, to be a wife and mother truly can be, when united to Christ, one of the wildest of adventures.

Our Home Oratory for October - Month Dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary

Bottom left is a guardian angel icon, bottom right, St. Simeon holding the Christ Child.



The centre is a painting of The Fifteen Mysteries and the Virgin of the Rosary  Source: Met Museum

For the feast of Christ the King, The Bonnie Prince.  Image available from here

For the feast of the Maternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary I decided to display our icon of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour.  


The large silver bowl at the back is for our rosaries (which are mostly absent it would seem in this shot).  I would like to hang our rosaries on hooks but we rent and our current place doesn't have anywhere for hanging them so a bowl it is instead.  


This is our icon corner/school book area which is opposite our dining/school table.  All the books are our school books.  Usually only the bottom two book areas get messy.  I have used this area for icons at Advent/Christmas, Lent/Easter and then the space has gone back to its regular use (books) outside of the seasons but I have found in recent times that I want to continue it year round.  We spend a lot of time here so it is a reminder of Christ, Our Blessed Mother and the saints.  It is a focus during meal prayers and other prayers, and helps us to be aware of the liturgical season and feast days.  The current central icons are of saints for the month of October.  The book stand at the bottom is for putting icons of the feast days that our family take special note of.  All the photo's in this post were taken today on the Feast of Christ the King.
And a very blessed feast of Christ the King to all!  Christus Vincit! Christus Regnat! Christus Imperat! (A favourite hymn of mine for this feast day)


I really need to give our old buffet/hutch a bit of a sanding and re-varnish, plus some new drawer knobs!  Hopefully I can get around to it soon.

The Rosary in Pictures - Stained Glass Windows - A Downloadable Booklet



I made this booklet up for my family a few months ago now.  I have edited the following download a bit from the original so please let me know if you spot any errors.  We all use this booklet.  Our almost two year old loves to look through it as we pray.  Sorry it's so big again at 52MB.  
I had our booklet printed up at our local print store on 100gsm uncoated paper, A5, single sided and coil bound.  It cost around $13.  I would highly recommend having it printed at a print store.  I have found over the years that rather than print out something that will use a lot of ink at home, for it to be more cost effective and worthwhile the effort of getting a good quality result, you end up with something that looks better and lasts longer.
