A Christmas Prayer
"Oh Christ, Light of all lights, Star of all stars,
dweller within these human homes of ours,
open our wandering minds and hesitant hearts
so your endless goodness radiates more completely in us.
We welcome you again and again, with gratitude and trust,
not only in this Christmas season of remembrance and celebration,
but all through the new year that awaits us."
