BOSTON (CNS) — The Daughters of St. Paul have launched a “Cinema Novena” as an online prayer companion to the just-released film “The Young Messiah” and “to draw audiences deeper to the Holy Family,” said an announcement from the Boston-based religious community.
Beginning March 11, the nine-day online novena of prayer goes until March 19, the feast of St. Joseph.
Each day, the online novena will include a film clip from “The Young Messiah,” a corresponding question for reflection/meditation, and a prayer to the Holy Family. The studio has released nine clips on various themes related to the Holy Family as depicted in the film.
Individuals who want to participate in the “Cinema Novena” can register at http://lightalongtheway.com/youngmessiah. Families, religious education classes, adult faith formation classes, parishes, schools, clergy and religious also are invited to join in the novena.
The novena is using the hashtags #CinemaNovena #TheYoungMessiah and #HolyFamilyPrayForUS.
