His Mercy is from Age to Age

Annunication by Fra Angelico

Annunciation by Fra Angelico

Almighty ever-living God,
as we see how the Nativity of your Son
according to the flesh draws near,
we pray that to us, your unworthy servants,
mercy may flow from your Word,
who chose to become flesh of the Virgin Mary
and establish among us his dwelling,
Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

                                              – Collect from Mass for December 23, Roman Missal

What areas in our lives most need God’s mercy, and how will we give those over to God this Christmas?
