"What is a novena?"
The word "novena" comes from the Latin word "nine" (novem). A novena is simply nine days of prayer, modeled on the nine days between the Ascension of the Lord and the Descent of the Holy Spirit, when the apostles gathered in prayer together with Mary, the Mother of Jesus and his relatives.
"But I don't have time to make a novena."
Cinema Divina: The Young Messiah is a prayer-experience that fits in the space of a coffee break. It is designed for busy people who find themselves in front of a computer all day and wish they could use the computer itself to help their prayer life.
