With quietness, 0 God, our hearts draw near the rude stall where Christ was born.
The noise of the world is stilled for a moment. The joy of heaven is heard. Help us to think deeply on this event which we celebrate once again.
By the way of Bethlehem lead us, 0 Lord, into newness of life;
By the innocence of the Christ Child, renew our simple trust;
By the tenderness of Mary, deliver us from cruelty and coldness of heart; By the patience of Joseph, save us from all rash judgment and ill action; By the shepherds' watch, open our eyes to the signs of Your coming;
By the Magi's journey, keep our searching spirits from giving up;
By the music of the heavenly choir, put to shame the clamor of the earth; By the shining of a star, guide our feet into the way of peace.
0 God of the manger, become the God of our lives. Fill our hearts with
kindness, our actions with caring, our spirits with gentleness, so that we might become more like You, even as You became one of us in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
