Christ is the reason for the season...

Jesus Christ: born in the city of Bethlehem, which is Hebrew for "House of Bread"; the bread of life given to all so that we may never hunger:

"Jesus said to them, 'I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst...'" - John 6:35 (NAB)



Thank you, Lord, for giving us your son, Jesus Christ, given to us so that we may have eternal life.

May your children remember you, Lord, during this season in which we give thanks to you, and may they show good will towards each other in the spirit and manner your son instructed us to live.

May peace reign on earth, and may the broken hearted and the lost come to truly know our saviour and redeemer.

Place your blessings upon the Church and her faithful, that it may continue to be a refuge for sinners and a haven for saints, that all may come to know your son who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.

Amen.
