Yes the Novena certainly teaches us lots of things - persistence, consistency - among other things!

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

LOL! I'm still thinking, too! Creating the topic was sort of one of those things where I was "told to do it"... Guess the HS wants our opinions and admissions!
One thing though, I have seen the power executed by the Novenas in my DH's behaviors and in the guidance we have been given by God. Praised be God!
There is a peace that comes from the Rosary that cannot be duplicated by anything else. The power that flows through the prayers is unstoppable! A Rosary is Scripture, pure and simple. God says His Word does not go out void... add the graces and intercession of Our Blessed Mother, and a Rosary will not fail to bring about the Holy Will of God (in His time).
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us!

Great thread, CATHOLICCORGI!

I'll have a think and then come back with my answer.

Even tho I have faltered a bit here at the end, it has been a time of peace as I stop to pray-usually of an evening as that is when I can manage the time best. I feel connected to my spark buddies here as we pray for the same things.

I belong to this MOMS (Ministry Of Mothers Sharing) ministry at my church and there are women of all ages in the group. I know many things, but am learning so much more at the same time. We gather each month to talk about a topic we have chosen. Well one of my favorite women in the group is older and in her 80's... you'd never know it though, hee hee... and she has been teaching me more and more about The Novenas. I'm so blessed to be part of this group of women who are teaching me! So right now it has affected me, but probably not in the same way as others. BUT for sure it has brought me closer to Mother Mary and my God.

Hope that all makes sense, hee hee.

Merry Christmas all my SP friends! Have a very merry & BLESSED season!

I like to know I'm praying with all the others who take part.
It is a very special time of day for me - it feels like meditation in motion.
I believe it does help me in giving me an oasis of order in my busy days, and that it does strengthen my faith.
I'm looking forward to the next one, even though I pray the rosary daily anyway.

Now that this 24th Novena is complete, what has it meant to you? Does it make a change in your daily life? Does it strengthen you? Has it helped your Faith grow?
