A Special Christmas Message from Holy Angels

A Prayer for Christmas

O, Divine Child, as we celebrate Your wondrous birth, we ask You to watch over us in these difficult times of sickness and death.

Be near to all who are suffering in the pandemic; be near to the families of the sick, the grieving families, those who care for the sick, nurses, doctors, first responders and others who risk their lives each day.
Comfort the dying and lead them safely home to the eternal Bethlehem.
In this holy season help us to be selfless as You are selfless, to put others' safety and welfare above our own desires; teach us that sometimes the way to show true, unselfish love is to stay apart from one another, as difficult as that may be.

May Your holy Mother, who cradled You in her arms that first Christmas night, cradle us too, lift us up, and hold us close to You. 
Amen
