A holy day has dawned upon us. Come, you nations, and adore the Lord. For today a great light has come upon the earth.
Collect Prayer (for 9:00am Mass)
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. Amen.
Collect Prayer (for 11:00am Mass)
Today a light will shine upon us, for the Lord is born for us; and he will be called Wondrous God, Prince of peace, Father of future ages: and his reign will be without end. Amen.
