Merry Christmas, everyone! May God grant us the resolve to run forth to meet Jesus Christ with righteous deeds at his coming, so that, gathered at his right hand, we may be worthy to possess the heavenly kingdom.
Let us pray.
Grant, we pray, almighty God,
that, as we are bathed in the new radiance of your incarnate Word,
the light of faith, which illumines our minds,
may also shine through in our deeds.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
Our main Christmas present this year is a puppy named Luna. I wish I could get some good pictures of her with me.
