Advent and Christmas devotions
The Adoration of the Magi by Fra Angelico
Advent and Christmas devotions
Advent is the four-week
period of preparation for the
coming of Jesus Christ,
celebrated at Christmas.
The most popular devotion
during Advent in churches and
homes is the advent wreath,
with the progressive lighting of
its four candles, Sunday after
Sunday, until Christmas.
Advent and Christmas devotions
At Christmas it is customary
to erect a crib, a devotion
started by St Francis of Assisi.
A crib is made up of figures of
the baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph
and others grouped according
to the scene at Bethlehem
where Jesus Christ was born.
The Nativity by Petrus Christus
Lent and Easter devotions
The Crucifixion by Giotto di Bondone
Lent and Easter devotions
The Resurrection by Piero della Francesca
Lent is the period of forty
days in which we prepare,
by prayer, fasting and
penance, for the
celebration of the death
and Resurrection of Jesus
Christ at Easter.
Lent and Easter devotions
The most popular devotion
during Lent is the Stations of
the Cross (the Via Crucis). In
this devotion we walk and pray
at fourteen stations that retrace
the Passion of Jesus Christ
from his condemnation to his
entombment.
These stations can be found in
nearly every church, and
sometimes outdoors and at
shrines such as Lourdes.Scenes from the Passion of Christ by Hans Memling
Ordinary Time devotions
Ordinary Time devotions
Ordinary Time covers the
rest of the year. It includes,
however, some major
solemnities and feasts.
On Corpus Christi it is
customary to carry the Blessed
Sacrament around the church
or through nearby streets in
solemn procession.
The Rosary
is a popular
Marian
devotion.
The
Magdalene
is practising a
Catholic
devotion,
reading and
praying
meditatively.
The Book of
Hours
was a traditional
medieval
devotion with
prayers set
throughout the
day at different
times.
The jar of oil
is the symbol of
repentance, the
costly nard used
to anoint the
feet of Christ.
Ordinary Time devotions
On the Assumption we
honour the Blessed Virgin
Mary by a procession and by
crowning her statue.
The months of May and
October are also times when
we particularly honour our
Blessed Mother.
Many Catholics prepare for the
major feasts by a novena, a
series of prayers over the
preceding nine days.The Coronation of the Virgin by Quarton
Devotions to the Holy Eucharist
The Last Supper by Sassetta
Devotions to the Holy Eucharist
Eucharistic adoration is the worship of
Jesus Christ, present under the appearance
of bread. It is customary to expose the
Eucharistic host in a monstrance for a set
period of time outside Mass in order that
we may see and adore him.
Most parishes set aside at least an hour a
week for Eucharistic adoration. Another
popular practice is the Forty-Hour
devotion of the Eucharist, and in some
places there is perpetual adoration.
Devotions to the Holy Eucharist
Benediction is the rite of blessing
with the Eucharistic host. It is given
by a priest or deacon.
It is customary to sing (for example,
the Tantum Ergo) and incense the
host during Benediction.

Catholic Devotions (II)
Our Lady of China, Our Lady of Guadalupe and the Wilton Dyptich
Devotions to the Blessed Virgin Mary
Devotions to the Blessed Virgin Mary
Our Lady of Guadalupe
The sun and moon
These symbols are a clear
reference to Rev 12:1:
“And a great portent appeared
in heaven, a woman clothed with
the sun, with the moon under
her feet, and on her head a
crown of twelve stars.”
The black band
indicates that Our Lady
is pregnant with the
child Jesus.
Devotions to the Blessed Virgin Mary
This image was imprinted
on the cactus fibre cloak of
Juan Diego in 1531
following a series of
apparitions of Our Lady.
Our Lady of Guadalupe
The red dress
is that of an Aztec
princess, showing that
Mary is the heavenly
queen of all peoples.
The blue mantle
is the Aztec colour
of divinity.
Devotions to the Blessed Virgin Mary
The Rosary is series of prayers which
brings to mind 20 of the most important
events in the life of Jesus and Mary.
For each of the 20 mysteries (5 joyful, 5
luminous, 5 sorrowful and 5 glorious) we
pray a ‘decade’, which is: one Our Father,
ten Hail Mary’s and one Glory Be,
following these prayers on a set of beads.
We usually pray 5 mysteries at a time.
Devotions to the Blessed Virgin Mary
There are many other Marian
devotions including the
Angelus, the Litany of Loreto,
wearing the Brown Scapular
and the Miraculous Medal.
Devotions to the saints and the dead
Devotions to the saints and the dead
Patron saints accompany, help and
intercede for us. We choose saints as
patrons, especially at Baptism and
Confirmation. It is good to venerate
holy pictures and statues of these
patrons. Countries, occupations and
activities also have distinctive patrons.
St George is the patron of England; St
Thomas More is a patron of politicians
and lawyers; St Catherine of Siena is a
patron of Europe.
Devotions to the saints and the dead
A common prayer to aid
the souls in purgatory is:
“Eternal rest grant unto them,
O Lord, and let perpetual
light shine upon them, may
they rest in peace”.
To visit graves and pray
for our deceased is a
work of mercy.
Detail from The Coronation of the Virgin by Quarton
Shrines and pilgrimages
Triumphal Entry by Giotto di Bondone
Christ’s entry into Jerusalem at the pilgrimage time of Passover reminds us of the
spiritual importance of pilgrimage in the Christian life.
Shrines and pilgrimages
A pilgrimage is a journey to a
shrine for the purpose of
prayer and special intentions,
the journey itself also
representing the Christian
passage through life to heaven.
A pilgrimage can be short or
long, and undertaken
individually or in a group.
Shrines and pilgrimages
In a devotional sense a ‘visit’
can be to a church to kneel
and pray before Christ in the
tabernacle. It can also mean
the lighting of a candle and a
prayer before a statue or image
of Our Lady or a saint.
Recommended devotions for the home
Recommended devotions for the home
It is strongly recommended that
every Catholic family pray the
Rosary together, pray before and
after meals and at the beginning
and end of the day.
It is fitting for every Catholic
home to have a crucifix and
some holy image of Mary or the
saints. Some houses have a little
shrine or prayer corner where a
candle can be lit and prayers said.
Recommended devotions for the home
A family Bible set in an
important position in the
house is also a good practice.
Many homes have a holy
water font by the door of the
house so that those passing
by may bless themselves with
the Sign of the Cross.

His Resurrection.
Through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.

  • 28. The sun and moon These symbols are a clear reference to Rev 12:1: “And a great portent appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.” The black band indicates that Our Lady is pregnant with the child Jesus. Devotions to the Blessed Virgin Mary This image was imprinted on the cactus fibre cloak of Juan Diego in 1531 following a series of apparitions of Our Lady. Our Lady of Guadalupe The red dress is that of an Aztec princess, showing that Mary is the heavenly queen of all peoples. The blue mantle is the Aztec colour of divinity.
  • 29. Devotions to the Blessed Virgin Mary The Rosary is series of prayers which brings to mind 20 of the most important events in the life of Jesus and Mary. For each of the 20 mysteries (5 joyful, 5 luminous, 5 sorrowful and 5 glorious) we pray a ‘decade’, which is: one Our Father, ten Hail Mary’s and one Glory Be, following these prayers on a set of beads. We usually pray 5 mysteries at a time.
  • 30. Devotions to the Blessed Virgin Mary There are many other Marian devotions including the Angelus, the Litany of Loreto, wearing the Brown Scapular and the Miraculous Medal.
  • 31. Devotions to the saints and the dead
  • 32. Devotions to the saints and the dead Patron saints accompany, help and intercede for us. We choose saints as patrons, especially at Baptism and Confirmation. It is good to venerate holy pictures and statues of these patrons. Countries, occupations and activities also have distinctive patrons. St George is the patron of England; St Thomas More is a patron of politicians and lawyers; St Catherine of Siena is a patron of Europe.
  • 33. Devotions to the saints and the dead A common prayer to aid the souls in purgatory is: “Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them, may they rest in peace”. To visit graves and pray for our deceased is a work of mercy. Detail from The Coronation of the Virgin by Quarton
  • 34. Shrines and pilgrimages Triumphal Entry by Giotto di Bondone Christ’s entry into Jerusalem at the pilgrimage time of Passover reminds us of the spiritual importance of pilgrimage in the Christian life.
  • 35. Shrines and pilgrimages A pilgrimage is a journey to a shrine for the purpose of prayer and special intentions, the journey itself also representing the Christian passage through life to heaven. A pilgrimage can be short or long, and undertaken individually or in a group.
  • 36. Shrines and pilgrimages In a devotional sense a ‘visit’ can be to a church to kneel and pray before Christ in the tabernacle. It can also mean the lighting of a candle and a prayer before a statue or image of Our Lady or a saint.
  • 38. Recommended devotions for the home It is strongly recommended that every Catholic family pray the Rosary together, pray before and after meals and at the beginning and end of the day. It is fitting for every Catholic home to have a crucifix and some holy image of Mary or the saints. Some houses have a little shrine or prayer corner where a candle can be lit and prayers said.
  • 39. Recommended devotions for the home A family Bible set in an important position in the house is also a good practice. Many homes have a holy water font by the door of the house so that those passing by may bless themselves with the Sign of the Cross.
