With these simple, beautiful mediations, you can create a spiritual crèche and prepare your heart for the coming of the Christ Child……
Dec. 8 ~ SOFT STRAW. Also provide your manger with soft straw by performing little acts of mortification; for instance, bear the cold without complaints; or sit and stand erect. Dear Jesus, who suffered so much for me, let me suffer for love of Thee.
Dec. 9 ~ SWADDLING CLOTHES. Prepare these for the Divine Infant by folding your hands when you pray, and by praying slowly and thoughtfully. Jesus, let me love Thee more and more.
Dec. 10 ~ BLANKETS. Provide the manger of your heart with soft, warm blankets. Avoid harsh and angry words; be kind and gentle to all. Jesus, help me to be meek and humble like Thee.
Dec. 11 ~ FUEL. Bring fuel to the crib of Jesus. Give up your own will; obey your superiors carefully and promptly. Jesus, let me do Thy will in all things.
Dec. 12 ~ WATER. Bring fresh, clean water to the crib. Avoid every untruthful word and every deceitful act. Dearest Mary, obtain for me true contrition for my sins.
Dec. 13 ~ PROVISIONS. Bring a supply of food to the crib. Deprive yourself of some food at meal time; or candy or snack, especially when you feel like eating. Jesus, be my strength and nourishment.
Dec. 14 ~ LIGHT. See that the crib has sufficient light. Be neat and orderly about your person; keep everything in its place in your room. Jesus, be the life and light of my soul.
