The Virtue for DECEMBER is Hope. Let us pray for the grace and strength to be people of hope ~ people who can see, participate in and contribute to God's goodness emerging around us. Amen.
A Prayer for Advent
GOD OF HOPE YOU SENT US JESUS, THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.
AS WE LIGHT OUR ADVENT CANDLES, ONE BY ONE,
A WEEK AT A TIME, MAY WE REKINDLE WITHIN OURSELVES,
THE DESIRE TO MAKE PEACE FOR HIM.
MAY THE FLAME OF HIS PRESENCE GROW BRIGHTER AND BRIGHTER
IN OUR HEARTS, IN OUR SCHOOL, AND IN OUR WORLD.
MAY THE GOD OF HOPE FILL US WITH JOY AND PEACE
THIS CHRISTMAS BY THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. AMEN.
