Today in the City of David a Savior has been Born for You Who is Christ the Lord


O God, who wonderfully created the dignity of human nature
and still more wonderfully restored it,
grant, we pray,
that we may share in the divinity of Christ,
who humbled himself to share in our humanity,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

                     – Collect for Christmas Mass during the Day, Roman Missal

How often do I consider the real depth of the gift we receive in Christ, and how can I make a gift of my own life back to God?
