Merry Christmas

     In my "EMail" today is one of the most beautiful nativity scenes that I have seen. I wish to share it with you and the adapted prayer "The Magnificat" sent for the gifts that we are blessed to receive during the celebration of the birth of Christ. Perhaps you will consider its use. 


May God Bless You with His Choicest Blessings. Karen


Christmas Thanks


Loving Father,
 all of these Christmas gifts
 symbolize how much you love us
with the supreme Gift of your Son, Jesus Christ,
born for us this Christmas day.
 We give these gifts to one another to express
 how grateful we are for your unfathomable generosity
 and to show how eager we are to share that goodness with one another.
Bless these tokens of love and caring.
Never let us get attached to material things,
but rather let the joy flowing from these presents
 strengthen our bonds of love, deepen our relationships,
and move us to be more thankful, selfless, and giving all the days of our life.
Thank you for the birth of Jesus, Our Savior
.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, 
and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, 
is now and will be forever.
Amen.
