Fourth Day of Christmas
We praise you because your fullness
was pleased to dwell in Jesus Christ.
We praise you because you dwell as
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in your Church.
Help us as your Church to live out your
presence in us in the same ways that
Jesus lived out your presence in him.
to care more about helping the vulnerable
than about making our lives more impregnable,
to care more about feeding the hungry
than about feeding our already sated appetites, and
to care more about including those on the outside
than about being included by those on the inside.
