December 22nd ~
O Divine Word, Who for the love of all of us, Your poor creatures, was pleased to be born under the most lowly stable roof, to be wrapped in swaddling clothing, and to be laid in a manger; grant that we may also renounce all wordly vanities, and embrace poverty of spirit and mortification of the flesh so necessary for our perfection. Grant that we may be thoroughly detached from creatures and poor in all things except Thy love and Thy grace.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be...
Sweet Jesus, be my love.
