Christmas Novena, Day 4

A lovely prayer for these final days of Advent:
O Jesus, living in Mary, come and live in your servants,
in the spirit of your holiness,
in the fullness of your power,
in the reality of your virtues,
in the perfection of your ways,
in the communion of your mysteries.
Have dominion over every adverse power,
in your own Spirit,
to the glory of God the Father.
(Jean Jaques Olier, SS)

ah, I recognize this from St. Louis de Montfort! My family is going through the Consecration for Christmas.

But his version says, "subdue within me the power of flesh and demon" vs. "have dominion over every adverse power..."
