A Christmas Blessing

To my friends far & near:

I Wish you a blessed Christmastide! Be comforted today in knowing that the veil between time and eternity was rent, and the very expression of God was incarnate in the form of a helpless infant. Pause to remember the means of our redemption began in a dank, dark stable on a cold night in the Bethlehem.

Almighty God, you have given your only-begotten Son to take our nature upon
him, and to be born [this day] of a pure virgin: Grant that we, who have been born again and made your children by adoption and grace, may daily be renewed by your Holy Spirit; through our Lord Jesus Christ, to whom with you and the same Spirit be honor and glory, now and for ever. Amen.
Book of Common Prayer, Collect for Christmas Day

Merry Christmas!
