In Her Message of November 23rd, the Most Holy Virgin made a special request to us as Christmas season approaches:
"Today I illuminate you with My Star of Light o Bethlehem and I have come to ask you and to announce to you that on the 30th of November I would like to see in all homes, places of work, as well as in each Monastery of the Order, the Manger of the Sacred Family. (...) I wish that the place that you yourselves will choose to put the Holy Manger, be preciously adorned with Christmas garlands, thus creating a sacred space of adoration and of contemplation."
My aspiration is that from the 1st of December until the Nativity of your Lord you pray at least three times a day the prayer once delivered to the Divine Manger of the Sacred Family.
I especially wish that in the Communities, during these days, you work in prayer at the foot of the Holy Manger of Bethlehem so that the hearts may remember, in this cycle, the importance of fertilizing the spirit of fraternity, of solidarity and of compassion among beings.
I wish, My children, that those who accept to carry out the fulfillment of this request of your Celestial Mother know that from the 1st of December until the date of the Nativity of Jesus, we will be working together in the reconstruction of the spirit of love in the families of the world as well as in the healing of hatred, of rancor and of the lack of love that is daily generated among the servers of the spiritual path and in the families that are more distant form God."
Prayer to be recited especially during the Christmas Eve of the Lord and
at the end of the Holy Rosary of the 24th of December.
Divine Rays descend from Heaven
over the dear city of Bethlehem.
The Angels announce to the shepherds
the Birth of the King of Humility.
Jesus is known by His Sacred Name,
He is the Prince that was born from the family of King David
but His identity does not belong to this world,
His Wise Spirit comes from the Holy Spirit of God.
The Jesus Child has arrived to the world
to liberate it from error.
He is the Savior of all the races,
He is the Messiah of the Celestial Annunciation.
The Angel Gabriel has dictated His Sacred Name.
The Most Holy Virgin has sheltered in Her bosom the Creator Power
from Her most pure womb has been born the Savior,
from the Most Holy Mary has awakened the Redeemer Christ.
Before this great universal mystery
our hearts consecrate themselves
because the prophecies of the Patriarchs have been fulfilled
and the Son of God has defeated death with His Divine Passion.
Every race has been renewed
by the victorious coming of the Son of God.
From Bethlehem has emerged the Eternal Light for the dark world.
The Orient has been united to the Occident
and nothing will ever more be separated
because we have received the Mercy of God.
We are sheep of the Great Shepherd Child.
We are redeemed stars upon the Earth.
May this Holy Birth of Christ impel us to continue walking.
Nothing shall detain us.
Nothing shall torment us.
Nothing shall separate us from God.
We are members of the Sacred Family.
We are children of the Most Hoy Virgin.
We are faithful companions of Saint Joseph.
In Christ we shall fulfill the Will of God
as it was in the beginning,
now and forever.
