O wondrous night, when you,
Almighty and Eternal God,
came to earth as a baby and
dwelt among us as a human!
You restored the human race
to the dignity lost in Eden
and raised it further still
by Uour glorious Incarnation.

O blessed day, dawning on a people
who walked in darkness,
help us always to see and celebrate
Your presence among us,
especially in the poor, the sick,
the aged and the oppressed.

From the humble stable in Bethlehem
let the message go forth that
Emanuel, God-With-Us,
remains with us still and
no power on earth, in heaven or hell
can ever separate us from the love of
God Made manifest in Christ Jesus.

Amen.

Father Joseph Veneroso, M.M.
