Prayer To Bambino de Ara-Coeli:A Help To Childless Couples

The celebrated statue of the Divine Infant was carved in Jerusalem from the olive trees of Gethsemani in the 15th century by a member of the Franciscan Order who brought it to Rome and placed it in the church of the Friars Minor of Ara Coeli on the capitol for public veneration. It is now known,visited, and honored by the whole Catholic World on account of the innumerable favors which the Divine Infant bestows on those who venerate it.


Most lovable Lord Jesus, who didst become a little Child for us and willed to be born in a stable to deliver us from the darkness of sin, to draw us to Thee and to inflame us with Thy holy love, we adore Thee as our Creator and Redeemer, we bow down before Thee and desire Thee to be our King and Sovereign Lord, and we offer Thee, as a tribute, all the affections of our poor hearts.
Dear Jesus, our Lord and our God, vouchsafe to accept this offering, and that it may be less unworthy of Thee, pardon our sins, enlighten and inflame us with that holy fire which Thou didst bring upon earth to kindle in our hearts.
May our souls thus become an altar on which to offer to Thee the sacrifice of our mortifications and may we ever seek Thy greater glory here below so that one day we may come to enjoy Thy infinite beauty in Heaven. Amen.

    Meron din bang oracion o prayer na hindi na manganganak ang anak ng anak?
    Para di na lumubo ang populasyon ng Pilipinas?
    Nagtatanong lang po!
