Nativity of the Lord
Today we celebrate a light in the darkness. But not everyone can see it. John the Evangelist had to explain it, because the world did not recognize Jesus. God is indeed here among us, in human flesh. We are invited to see this amazing light and help others recognize it, too.
- Lord Jesus, you were with God from the beginning of the world: Lord, have mercy.
- Christ Jesus, you came to bring light to the world: Christ, have mercy.
- Lord Jesus, you gave us power to become children of God: Lord, have mercy.
