Second Day Novena to Jesus Nazareno : 2 of 9

A Great Quote from Jesus Nazarene to remember:

DON’T WORRY ABOUT THE FUTURE. “Sometimes insightful sayings seem obvious once you hear them – I think that is the case here. Live in the moment you’re in!“So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today. (Matthew 6:34)”

OPENING PRAYER FOR EVERYDAYO Jesus Nazarene, my most sweet Redeemer, I prostrate myself before Thee, with a heart full of repentance for all the sins I have committed against Thee, especially for my forgetfulness of the graces which thou has bestowed on me in the past, most particularly the ineffable grace of the act of redemption. Jesus, I am sorry and deeply grieve my offenses.

My Lord, I am sorry for all my sins which have been the cause of Thy carrying of the cross in the midst of suffering and em bitterness until thous has offered Thy life in Mt Calvary. This thou hast done for love of me, a sinful creature, and for love of mankind.

Allow me now, my sweet Lord to bring myself face to face with Thee, however unworthy I am. Forgive me all my sins, since Thou didst not want the condemnation of the sinner but his conversion and salvation. I come to Thee with firm purpose of amendment and a resolve not to displease Thee again by sin but to pledge my service to Thee, unto the hour of my death. Sanctify O God my desires and deign to grant me the graces which I need, and I call upon the powerful, intercession of Thy Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary. Amen.

SECOND DAY – JESUS CARRIES HIS CROSS.

MEDITATION

Remember this day that a heavy cross is laid upon the bruised shoulders of Jesus Christ. Most willingly Jesus accepts and patiently bears His cross for my sake. Will I refuse to bear my cross for His sake? No, my loving Redeemer, I will no longer seek to evade my cross, but with the help of thy grace I will bear it with Christian patience and resignation and follow Thee always.

REFLECTION

In the beginning of creation, God made life and death co-exist. But at the operation, each is opposed to the other, hence if one exists, the other ceases. Yes, when death comes, life follows. God created us to know Him, to love Him, to serve Him and to be happy with Him forever in heaven, Someday, we do not know when, where and how death will overtake us. Life is everlasting for those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and death is endless to those who will die in mortal sin. To the believers, death is merely the cessation of man’s activity.

(Pray three Hail Mary’s in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary so that she may ask from Jesus her Son the grace which you would like to obtain from Him).

CLOSING PRAYERPRAYER TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN

O Mary, Mother laden with sorrows, I humbly ask of thee, through the merits of thy grief which Thou didst suffer because of the death of thy Son, our Lord and God. Who was disfigured by bruises and blood for love of me, that thou offer to God my supplications so that I may obtain the graces which I ask from Him.
O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee

SPECIAL PRAYER 

O most sweet Jesus Nazarene, My God and Redeemer, who hast trodden the road to Calvary with the weight of the cross on thy shoulders: look down on me a sinner who is now giving praise to Thy sufferings. I also thank Thee for saving me through thy sweet acceptance of sufferings on the cross.

Forgive me my sins, O Good Jesus. I acknowledge my weaknesses and I trust that out of the boundless mercy Thou will wash with Thy blood my inumerable sins. I love Thee above all things, and I promise to be faithful to Thy commandments unto the hour of my death.

Be with me, Lord and guide my steps so that I may reach the end of this earthly journey to the kingdom of heaven. Amen
