Opening Prayer

We come, O God, with adoration and praise, as well as thanksgiving, to you.  Our anticipation grows as we come nearer to the day of great celebration of the birth of your Christ.  Open our hearts that we may truly receive the gift of your Son, and know the true joy of life with you.  This we pray through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
