In this holy time of year when we gather with
fellow believers, family, and friends,
May you be filled with the wonder of Mary,
the obedience of Joseph,
the joy of the angels,
the eagerness of the shepherds,
and the peace of the Christ child.
And may Almighty God—
The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit,
bless you now and forever more.
