May the news of the angels fill your life and your heart with great joy.
May the star that guided the wise lead you to the truth of understanding.
May the witness of the shepherds affirm in you the message of the Gospel.
May the sound of the incarnate Word bring you peace and hope.
May the presence of the sacred baby remind you of your own holiness.
And may this Christmas gift you, bless, comfort you, inspire you,
as you journey into another year.
