DAY 2

MORNING PRAYER 

Third Week of Advent
The angel of the Lord appeared to them
 and the glory of the Lord shone around them
 and they were struck with great fear. 
The angel said to them, ”Do not be afraid; 
for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 
For today, in the city of David, a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord. 
And this will be a sign for you: 
you will find an infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manager.”
Luke 2:9-12

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone.  
May you be blessed with family and friends, rest and relaxation. 
Safe travels and safe returns. Amen
