A Christmas Meal Blessing from Magnificat

Blessed Christmas from Magnificat

Dear Friends,

We wish you a very merry and blessed Christmas! May this Christmas be a time of special joy and grace for you and all your family.

We would like to share with you the following blessing that you might like to pray as you gather for your Christmas meal:

Almighty God and Father of light,
a child is born for us and a son is given to us.
Your eternal Word leaped down from heaven
in the silent watches of the night,
and now your Church is filled with wonder
at the nearness of her God.

Open our hearts to receive this life
and increase our vision with the rising of dawn,
that our lives may be filled with his glory and his peace,
who lives and reigns for ever and ever.

Asking God's blessing for you and your dear ones, we assure you of our prayers, and thank you for being a faithful member of the Magnificat family.

Sincerely in Christ,


From the Vatican II Sunday Missal (Boston: Pauline Books and Media, 2001)
