The Novena for the Feast of the Incarnation

17th to 25th March

Mother of God Overshadowed by the Holy Spirit

Beautiful, blessed hollow reed

through which the Holy One poured himself into the world, please ask the Divine to shape me into a vessel for his love.

Remind me that the Beloved longs for union with me as fervently as I yearn for union with him.

As the Father sent his Holy Spirit to surround you, to be the Mother of the Word, his Son,

so let me open myself to the mystery of the Incarnation.

May I fulfil Venerable Magdalen’s desire to be a Christ-bearer here on earth.

May I learn to rejoice in the ordinary moments of my life and see God everywhere, and in everything I do.
