He Can Use Everything


When you try to live according to God's Will for you,
He can take everything in your life
and make it bear fruit--and Light--for others.

Hail and blessed be the hour and the moment
at which the Son of God
was born of the most pure Virgin
in a stable, at midnight, in Bethlehem
in the piercing cold.

At that hour vouchsafe, I beseech Thee,
to hear my prayers and grant my desires.
(Mention your intentions here)
Through Jesus Christ and His most Blessed Mother. Amen.


(Traditionally, this novena is prayed 15 times a day from November 30th until December 24th. We offer it here and now to be said as often as it occurs to you as a means of drawing your mind and heart  to the Still Point, to the Moment, to the Reason for the season.)

"This is what MDM is called to be: a growing communion of trust in His Mercy
for our needy world." ~ Fr. John Mary

MDM started encouraging people to pray "Jesus, I trust in You"  ten times a day back in 2011. Recently we felt it was important to remind people to turn to Jesus with this simple, powerful prayer in a world that feels more and more out of control. We are suggesting 20 times, but some people find themselves repeating it hundreds of times. It reminds our troubled souls that GOD IS IN CONTROL. 

Many of you have put your name on our growing list and have also left a prayer intention or testimony:

Your life of prayer gives encouragement to us who feel that the world is in deep trouble by taking prayer out of our schools and at public events.~Mark
