Christmas Novena Day Eight: This brilliant night

“In this brilliant night which illuminates the joy of the Holy Trinity, Jesus, the gentle little child of the hour, will change the darkness of my soul into torrents of light.”
-St. Therese of Lisieux

Emmanuel! What am I that You have loved me so well? I know you will dispel the darkness in my soul if only I will let You! Help me to proclaim the joyous news, remind me to adore Jesus and share His love in the ‘little ways’ of our ordinary life.
