Novena of Christmas - Day 3

Our Novena readings are excerpts from the Christmas letters of St. Paul of the Cross.

I desire that your heart be the crib of the gentle Infant so that he may be born there mystically; and that will happen if you will be faithful, as I hope, in keeping yourself hidden in interior solitude, sleeping like the Infant on the Cross and making all your afflictions die in the fire of divine charity with a true, silent, and total abandonment to the Will of God.

I am praying the Sovereign Divine Infant and the Divine Immaculate Mother to have you reborn to a new life of holy love. This Divine Birth will take place in the interior temple of your soul if you continue, as I hope, to be faithful to God, a lover of virtue, with a continual exercise of humility of heart, patience, silence, meekness, most fervent charity, and, above all, remaining solitary in the holy desert of your soul, taking your rest on the bosom of God in a sacred silence of faith and holy love.
