Advent Day 24: All is Calm

Let nothing you dismay:
Remember: Christ our savior
Was born on Christmas Day
Like the song "Silent Night," composed on Christmas Eve, great and meaningful things are often accomplished at the last minute. Even if your Advent has been rushed, take the hours before Christmas to reflect on the miracle of God coming into the world as a child.

Christmas Eve Prayer
On this Christmas Eve let’s look at the words that were spoken to Mary when she learned that she was chosen to be the mother of God’s Son. The angel Gabriel spoke four comforting promises to Mary in the first chapter of Luke. These promises are for us as well. Let’s allow them to resonate in our hearts on this Christmas Eve as we receive them in prayer and in faith.
