Week 6 – The Genealogy of Jesus

The liturgical week’s leading up to Christmas in the Maronite Church contain a series of events. Those events are also foretold in the Old Testament. In this sixth episode of our podcasts we hear the Maronite hymns which explain the Genealogy of Jesus, the Old Testament prophesies, the Gospel for the Genealogy and a short reflection.

Christmas Novena Day 9

The Maronite Christmas Novena, begins on 15 December and is nine consecutive days of prayer. It is a wonderful way of preparing ourselves for the birth of our Lord.

The Novena is designed to be prayed as a Parish community and includes incensing of the Blessed Sacrament, prayers, Syriac hymns and ends with Benediction of the blessed sacrament.

However, we have adapted a version on this podcast for families who can’t make it to a Church to participate at home for 9 days. It follows the inter-eparchial English format below and only requires 15 minutes per day. The text can be found at the link below and of course the podcast can’t include the benediction.
