Eleventh Day of Christmas
Thank you for the ways in which every day can be—should be—is—like Christmas.
After all, you are with us, in us, and among us every moment of every day; there is never a time when your presence is not a reality.
Since Jesus is Immanuel—“God with us”—and since God is love, cause us to grow so that your perpetual presence with us leads to our perpetual practice of the kind of love that only your presence can make possible.
Let your love which causes you to give and forgive lead us to become ever more giving and forgiving.
