Have you taken a moment to consider what the holiday is truly about? On the eve of such a holy day, it’s good to remember how it started.
As the light begins to pass on the day
and the birth of Christ draws closer,
let me hold fast to what matters.
Let my heart be lifted and my soul rejoice
at the incarnate Word made flesh.
May I spend these waning hours until Christmas
humbled by the simplicity of the moment
and the peace that it brings.
Sometimes a call, a visit, or a simple text to a loved one is priceless. Share this prayer with somebody who needs a lift on Christmas Eve.
