collect/opening prayer reflection Christmas
another collect/opening prayer reflection Christmas

Roman Catholics and Anglicans/Episcopalians and others pray the same collects at this time of year:

New translation, RC Received Text:

O God, who have made this most sacred night
radiant with the splendour 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 an reigns with you…

O God, who wonderfully created the dignity of human nature
and still more wonderfully restored it,
grant, we pray,
that we may share in the divinity of Christ
who humbled himself to share in our humanity.
Who lives and reigns with you…

  1. Thanks Bosco, I love a bit of Christmas Liturgy! You and your readers might find the Christmas information site I run interesting (http://www.whychristmas.com). On there is the history behind lots of Christmas Traditions, how Christmas is celebrated around the world and the history of the Christmas Story.

    Thanks for all your great work.
