The Word Became Flesh and Made His Dwelling Among Us
O God, who through the child-bearing of the holy Virgin
graciously revealed the radiance of your glory to the world,
grant, we pray,
that we may venerate with integrity of faith
the mystery of so wondrous an Incarnation
and always celebrate it with due reverence.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
– Collect from Mass for December 19, Roman Missal
As Christmas approaches, how can we open ourselves more to the wonder of the Incarnation, so that our faith might grow in the days ahead?
