DAY 1

MORNING PRAYER

Today we continue our journey into Advent as we explore the theme, the Holy Family. Today let us focus on St. Mary, the mother of Jesus. Her willingness to say "yes" to God resulted in God's plan  for salvation in the birth of Jesus.  

Loving God,

Thank you for the example of St. Mary

who said “yes” to God’s plan

and who cared deeply for her son Jesus

Help us to also know that St. Mary cares for us as well,

and that we can ask for her intercessory prayers.   

Bless our family, extended family, and family of faith. 

Through Christ our Lord, 

Amen

MORNING PRAYER

Advent marks a period of preparation for the coming of Christmas and the birth of Jesus of Nazareth, the Light of the World. This year our Advent theme is "the Holy Family".
