Through them the wonder of contemplation becomes a joyful invitation to action.

It’s Christmas!

The Word became a human being and set love alight on earth.

It’s Christmas!

And we would never wish the sun to set on this day.

Teach us, O Lord, how to preserve your presence among us.

It’s Christmas!

Let your love, set alight on earth, burn our hearts, and let us love one another as you desire!

Then you will be there among us.

And every day, if we love one another, can be Christmas.
