New Evangelization Novena: Let your light shine

Novena Day 8: Let your light shine

Let your light shine

Just as different parts of the human body have different functions and responsibilities, the various members of the Body of Christ, the Catholic Church, have diverse talents. In His divine goodness, God has distributed gifts among His children so as to collectively fill every need. You and your talents have a special role in the New Evangelization that cannot be replicated by anyone else. Reflect on what your gifts are and use them for the glory of God.

Opening Prayer

Lord God, we ask you to pour out your blessings on your Church as we answer your call to the New Evangelization. Grant us the grace to proclaim the Gospel to those who have not yet heard it and to those who have strayed from you, especially through the use of television in CatholicTV’s mission. Help us to see new ways to use the tools of our time to spread your Word to all people. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.


“Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” – Matthew 5:15-16


Lord Jesus, you have given us individual talents and tools to spread the Good News. Renew us in our efforts to use these gifts for your glory. Amen.
