“God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.

We trust "the voice of one crying out in the wilderness:
'Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
Every valley shall be filled,
and every mountain and hill shall be made low,
and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways made smooth;
and all flesh shall see the salvation of God'" (Luke 3:4-6).
We pray in the name of the one who comes,
Wrapped in swaddling clothes
and lying in in a manger,
born in Bethlehem.
