Blessed Christmas Eve!

Entrance Antiphon:
Behold, when the fullness of time had come,
God sent His Son into the world.

Collect:
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)

Only God
can give us rest
from enemies
on every side,
especially
the enemies
within.

He conquers sin

…to give His people
knowledge of salvation
by the forgiveness of their sins
~Luke 1:77

so we can celebrate
with Him!

…free to worship Him
without fear,
holy and righteous in His sight
~Luke 1:74-75

Am I depending on God to set me free?
Do I celebrate by worshipping Him?
