Blessed Christmas Eve!
Behold, when the fullness of time had come,
God sent His Son into the world.
Come quickly, we pray, Lord Jesus,
and do not delay,
that those who trust in Your compassion
may find solace and relief in Your coming.
Who live and reign with God the Father
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
Readings (Mass in the morning):
2 Samuel 7:1-5, 8-11, 16 (The kingdom of David shall endure forever in the sight of the Lord)
Psalm 89:2-5, 27, 29 “For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord”
+ Luke 1:67-79 (God swore to set us free to worship Him fearlessly)
can give us rest
on every side,
He conquers sin
…to give His people
knowledge of salvation
by the forgiveness of their sins
so we can celebrate
…free to worship Him
holy and righteous in His sight
Am I depending on God to set me free?
Do I celebrate by worshipping Him?
