The Advent Novena
You should begin your Novena* on December 17th, starting with Track 2. The next day, you should continue with Track 3, and so on, listening to the next track in sequence every day. With each new day, Fr. Thomas Acklin will give a meditation and lead you in prayer. In the meditations, Father Acklin will unpack the richness of the traditional "O" Antiphons, taken from the Church's daily prayers during the days leading up to Christmas.
Thank you for your support of Relevant Radio. We pray that this Novena may enrich your prayer life and that you may grow closer to Our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ. May God bless you!
* A novena consists of nine consecutive days of prayer for a special intention.
