HOPE: Isaiah prophesied that the Messiah would be born of a virgin, and would be called "Immanuel" - "God with us."
"Dear Lord, when You were ready, You sent us your Son, Jesus, born of the Virgin Mary. Please help us prepare the way for Him to be born again in our hearts this Christmas."
LOVE: God chose Mary to bear His Son. Mary obeyed God because she loved Him. Thus, God was able to save the world through Jesus.
"Dear God, thank You for sending us Jesus and for giving us Mary to be our mother as well. Dear Mother, help us feel Jesus' love in our hearts this Christmas."
JOY: Joseph and Mary left Nazareth and traveled to Bethlehem for the census. This week we light the rose candle in joy as Jesus' birth is drawing near.
"Dear God, Joseph and Mary trusted You even when they did not understand. Help us also to obey You even in trials. Then we will know Your peace and joy."
PEACE: Joseph and Mary found no place at the inn, but only a stable, where animals were fed. There they waited for Jesus to be born.
"Dear God, very soon we will rejoice in the birth of your Son. Mother Mary, help us to prepare for Christmas by taking time to pray and offer little sacrifices for others."
JESUS: Today is the day of our dear Savior's birth! Advent is over, and we celebrate the great feast of Christmas!
"Dear God, thank you for bringing us to this holy Christmas Day. May our hearts be open to receive You and others in Your name. Help us to celebrate with great joy the birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen!"
