“Divine Infant Jesus, I adore Your Cross,
and I accept all the crosses you will be pleased to send me.
Adorable Trinity, I offer you for the glory of the Holy Name of God
all the adorations of the Sacred Heart of the Holy Infant Jesus.”
- Ven. Marguerite of the Blessed Sacrament O.C.D.
In some Carmelite monasteries, the monthly novena to the Infant Jesus begins today - seems to me a fitting 'Octave' for the Solemnity of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. (We can babysit him all week.)
