Reception Novena - Day 8

Members of the East Kent Ordinariate Group look forward eagerly to the Mass of Reception into the Fullness of Communion in the Catholic Church on the 19th of April, Tuesday  in Holy Week.   As that day draws nearer, we offer a Novena of Prayer.

Day 8 of the Novena of Prayer

The royal banners forward go,
The cross shines forth in mystic glow;
Where he in flesh, our flesh who made,
Our sentence bore, our ransom paid.

We pray for grace to follow Christ our Saviour, singing
Hosanna to the Son of David :
Blessed is he who come in the name of the Lord :
Hosanna in the Highest!

Almighty and everlasting God,
who, of thy tender love towards mankind, hast sent thy Son Jesus Christ,
to take upon him our flesh, and to suffer death upon the cross,
that all mankind should follow the example of his great humility:
Mercifully grant, that we may both follow the example of his patience,
and also be made partakers of his resurrection;
Through the same Jesus Christ our Lord,
who liveth and reigneth with Thee and the Holy Ghost
ever one God, world without end.   Amen.

Our Father . . .   Hail Mary . . .   Glory be . . .

Our Lady of Walsingham, pray for us.   Blessed John Henry Newman, pray for us.
