Day 6 Prayer:
O Holy Virgin of Candelaria, we beg you
to help us reach your Son, Jesus, that he
may give us the grace to imitate his virtues,
fulfill the commandments, and have a horror
for mortal sins. Thus, one day, we will also
enjoy eternal life with you in heaven. Amen
“Give us the grace to imitate his virtues.”
Wow what a statement! As Christians we all strive to be Christ like (hence the name lol). Everyday we struggle to be more God like. It is a struggle that every Christian has whether they admit it or not. The Christ like thing to do by the way is to admit that you are not as Christ like as you would like to be. Luckily God accepts us and forgives us for our shortcomings.
In protection against poverty and illness, being Christ like is key. Mainly because if we do not try to imitate his actions we will not move forward in life. The Blessed Mother had a level of faith that I doubt I would be able to have. I do strive, but I do not have children now and I do not know that I would be able to accept God’s will to crucify my son. Last night I prayed for a stronger faith and I do feel that this Novena has definitely strengthen my faith.
