The mother of God can help us prepare for Christmas.
We can begin every morning during this Advent season with this short and lovely prayer asking for her help and intercession:
Holy Mother of God,

be our guide on the path to Nativity,
so in celebrating the birth of your son,
Jesus Christ our Savior,
our hearts will be transported with joy
Since you are here…
