Fifth Day of Advent
Thank you that in the baby born to Mary “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth.”
Thank you that the Incarnation continues in us; thank you that Christ is “born in us today” and that we live as the Body of Christ in the world.
Fill us with grace and truth so that we can embody grace and truth in a world that needs both so desperately. Help us to love so deeply, to give so freely, and to serve so willingly that people can see in us the truth about who you are that they might be drawn to you as you really are.
