Father, you show the world the splendor of your glory in the coming of Christ born of the Virgin.
Give to us true faith and love to celebrate the mystery of God made man.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Oh, Jesus who descended from Jesse, you are a sign of God's love.
I feel hopeful and expectant, filled with a rebirth of joy and love.
I depend you so much.
You are a rock for my belief and a sign of God's love.
Fill me with your praise!
I want to sing your glory, filled with joy for the message of hope you send.
I don't always understand when you are acting on my behalf.
Thank you for the message of hope you send me.
Give me true faith and love as I celebrate the mystery of how you came to be with us.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel Shall come to thee, O Israel!
