    Heavenly Father, your son, Jesus, is your greatest gift to us, a great sign of your love. Guide us as we strive to walk in that love together as a family this Advent.
    As we prepare our hearts for Christmas, bring us closer to each other and to your son. Give us the grace and strength we need every day.
    Help us to always trust in you.
    Come, Lord Jesus, lead 
    all people closer to you. Come and dispel the darkness of our world with the light of your love. Amen.
