Prayer that the light of Christmas may shine in our deeds



Philip Kosloski - published on 12/25/23

Christmas is focused on the coming of Jesus, the Light of the World, not only at Bethlehem, but also in our own lives.

The symbolism of light is a prevalent spiritual theme throughout Advent and the season of Christmas. Jesus in particular is seen as the Light of the World.

This theme is even found in the opening prayer of the Christmas Mass at Dawn, praying that the light of Christ may shine through us.

Grant, we pray, almighty God,
that, as we are bathed in the new radiance of your incarnate Word,
the light of faith,
which illumines our minds,
may also shine through in our deeds.
Through our lord Jesus Christ, your son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the holy spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
