O God, who have made this most sacred night radiant with the splendor of the true light, grant, we pray, that we, who have known the mysteries of his light on earth, may also delight in his gladness in heaven. Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. – Collect, At the Mass during the Night 

Grant us, we pray, O Lord our God, that we, who are gladdened by participation in the feast of our Redeemer’s Nativity, may through an honorable way of life become worthy of union with him. Who lives and reigns for ever and ever. – Prayer After Communion, At the Mass during the Night

This year has been interesting to say the least. I have experienced more joy than I ever have before, but also endured much suffering and pain as well. I am very blessed to be working now at St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Church with great priests and a very joy-filled staff. As we celebrate the Nativity this year, let us remember the many blessings we have in our lives because of our faith in Jesus Christ.

Thank you to all my followers on here, on Twitter, and my Facebook. Thank you for finding my writings a little interesting and helping me spread the Gospel message of Jesus Christ and His Catholic Church.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
