O sweet Child of Bethlehem,

grant that we may share with all our hearts


in this profound mystery of Christmas.


Put into the hearts of men and women this peace


for which they sometimes seek so desperately


and which you alone can give to them.


Help them to know one another better,


and to live as brothers and sisters,


children of the same Father.


Reveal to them also your beauty, holiness and purity.


Awaken in their hearts


love and gratitude for your infinite goodness.


Join them all together in your love.


And give us your heavenly peace. Amen.


~ Pope John XXIII
