Christmas Day

December 25, 2018

Let us pray that the Word-Made Flesh may find a home in every human heart this Christmas Day. May our voices herald Good News for all nations and all peoples in the joy of our Savior.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for Pope Francis and our Church leaders, that the Word of God may reveal compassion for all people surviving poverty and living in fear throughout the Church. May our leaders discover honesty and real concern for people.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for people living on the margins of society. For people waiting for housing, healthcare, education and the essentials of human dignity. We pray that the Word of God becomes flesh in our service to people in need.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for our families around our dinner tables this Christmas Day. For reconciliation among those we love. We pray for our children home from college and for our enthusiastic toddlers. We pray for our guests and strangers who dine with us this day.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for all military families this Christmas Day. For all who serve our country, for all who serve far from home this year and for all who wait the return of loved ones.

We pray to the Lord.

Let us pray for all who have died since last Christmas Day. For our loved ones who rest in God’s Kingdom and who see firsthand the face of Christ Jesus. We pray for all who grieve on earth on Christmas Day. At this Mass…

We pray to the Lord.
