Let us pray.
O God, You Who by the fruitful virginity of blessed Mary, have bestowed upon mankind the rewards of eternal salvation, grant, we beseech You, that we may enjoy the intercession of her through whom we have been found worthy to receive among us the author of life, our Lord Jesus Christ Your Son.
Who livest and reignest with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end.
Today is the first day of the new year and the eighth day of the Octave of the Nativity. Enjoy this mental prayer which continues to focus on the birth of Christ.
So with mental prayer, there are many ways to go about it. I prefer reading a short passage multiple times while focusing on different questions, such as what the passage means, how it makes you feel, and how you can live better.
