Christmas Eve 2015

O God, you have caused this holy night to shine with the brightness of the true Light: Grant that we, who have known the mystery of that Light on earth, may also enjoy him perfectly in heaven; where with you and the Holy Spirit he lives and reigns, one God, in glory everlastingAmen.

Today is Christmas Eve and we rejoice in the light of all the candles on the Advent wreath, plus additional ones like the white one in the center. The collect from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer calls us to welcome the True Light.

May we each be blessed as we welcome the Christ Child into heart and home this day and each day to come.

You will find other Christmas collects on the next couple days, when you have time to pause and pray, and welcome the Light.
