Miraculous God of New Beginnings –
- Grant us the Faith of Joseph, accepting your wise leading even when it is beyond our reasoning.
- Grant us the passionate imagination of the Magi, who followed an ancient star toward a distant land called Hope.
- Grant us the grace of shepherds who, though the lowliest of your children, were audience to a heavenly choir singing Glory, Glory, Glory! Peace on earth.
- And grant that we may know the Joy of Mary as we bear the Love of God to a world in pain.
In the name of the Babe, lying in a manger, who would be the King of Kings, Jesus Christ, your Son and our Savior, Amen.
