Come, King of all nations, source of your Church’s unity and faith: save all humankind, your own creation!

Lord Jesus, we desire to live in unity and in faith. Help us to respond with open ears to hear your words of wisdom and to share with those around us of your unconditional love for us. We ask this in your name. Amen.

The Christmas Guest

The Christmas Guest

It happened one day near december's end when two neighbors
Called on an old friend and they found his shop so meager and
Lean made gay with thousand bows of green and conrad was
Sitting with faces shining when he suddenly stopped as he
Stitched a twine and he said "old friends, it dawned today
As the cock was crowing the night away the lord appeared in
A dream to me and said "i'm coming your guest to be."
So i've been busy with feet of stern strewing my shop with
Branches of fern. the table is spread and the kettle is shine.
And over the rafters the holly is twine. now i'll wait for my
Lord to appear and listen closely so i will hear his step as
He nears my humble place. and i'll open the door and look on his face.
So his friends went home and left conrad alone for this
Was the happiest day he had known. for long since his family had
Passed away and conrad had spent many a sad christmas day.
But he knew with the lord as his christmas guest this christmas
Would be the dearest and best.
So he listened with only joy in his heart and with
Every sound he would rise with a start and look for the
Lord to be at his door. like the vision he had had a few hours before.
So he ran to the window after hearing a sound but all he could
See on the snow covered ground was a shabby beggar whose shoes
Were torn and all of his clothes were ragged and worn.
But conrad was touched and he went to the door
And he said "you know your feet must be frozen and sore.
I have some shoes in my shop for you and a coat that will
Keep you warmer too." so with grateful heart the man went away
But conrad noticed the time of day and wondered what made the
Lord so late and how much longer he'd have to wait.
When he heard a knock he ran to the door but it was
Only a stranger once more. a bent old lady with a shawl of

Black with a bundle of kindling piled on her back. she asked
For only a place to rest but that was reserved for conrad's
Great guest. but her voice seemed to plead "don't send me away,
Let me rest for awhile on christmas day", so conrad brewed
Her a steaming cup and told her to set at the table and sup.
But after she left he was filled with dismay for
He saw that the hours were slipping away and the lord hadn't come as
He said he would. then conrad felt sure he had misunderstood.
When out of of the stillness he heard a cry "please
Help me and tell me where am i?" so again he opened his
Friendly door and stood disapointed as twice before.
It was only a child that wandered away and was lost from
Her family on christmas day.
Again conrad's heart was heavy and sad but he knew
He should make the little girl glad. so he called her in
And he wiped her tears, quieted all her childish fears.
Then he led her back to her home once more but as he
Entered his own darkened door he knew the
Lord was not coming today.
Well the hours of christmas had passed away so he
Went to his room and knelt down to pray and he said
"dear lord, why did you delay? what kept you from
Coming to call on me? for i wanted so much your face to see.
" when soft in the silence a voice he heard.
"lift up your head for i kept my word.
Three times my shadow crossed your floor
And three times i came to your lowly door.
I was the beggar with bruised, cold feet
And i was the woman you gave something to eat.
I was the child on the homeless street.
Three times i knocked, and three times i came in.
And each time i found the warmth of a friend.
Of all the gifts, love is the best.
And i was honored to be your christmas guest

Glory to God in the Highest and Peace to His People on Earth.

God our Father, as we gather together this day to celebrate the birth of your Son, there is much joy in our hearts for we know of your love for us. This is a special moment in the lives of all humankind. The gift of your Son to us gives us the opportunity to rejoice in this precious gift of life and to take a moment to look at our own lives and know the true meaning of the words, “dignity and respect ” for all human life. May we grow in our knowledge and love of your Son and in so doing become more aware of your presence in our lives. We ask this in your name. Amen.

Christmas Prayer


Loving Father,
Help us remember the birth of Jesus, that we may share in the song of the angels, the gladness of the shepherds, and worship of the wise men.

Close the door of hate and open the door of love all over the world. Let kindness come with every gift and good desires with every greeting. Deliver us from evil by the blessing which Christ brings, and teach us to be merry with clear hearts.

May the Christmas morning make us happy to be Thy children, and Christmas evening bring us to our beds with grateful thoughts, forgiving and forgiven, for Jesus' sake. Amen.


- Robert Louis Stevenson

The Lord opened his mouth in the assembly, and filled him with the spirit of wisdom and understanding, and clothed him in a robe of glory. (Sir 15)

God our Father, you have revealed the mysteries of Your word through St. John. As we reflect on his life, may we become more aware of his words and his examples in life. May we come to a deeper understanding of what he is revealing to us about Your presence in life. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

These innocent Children were slain for Christ. They follow the spotless Lamb, and proclaim forever: Glory to you, Lord.

Father, today we are reminded of the children whose lives were taken due to jealousy and insecurity on one person’s part. Let us be reminded of the many children whose lives are still taken because of jealousy, envy, greed and insecurity. Help us to reveal your loving presence to those whose lives have been touched by the loss of a child. We ask this in your name. Amen.

God loved the world so much, he gave His only Son, that all who believe in Him might not perish, but might have eternal life. (Jn 3)

All-powerful and loving God, You have given us the gift of light in our world. Help us to reveal the gift of this light to those we encounter in our everyday lives. Guide us as we proclaim the birth of Your Son Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.

Blessed are those who fear the Lord and walk in his ways. (128)


Lord God, as we try to live according to your laws and ways, we sometimes fall short of being faithful and we become discouraged. For there are many distractions that surround us and it can become a bit overwhelming for us. We are in need of your guidance, your graces and your love to help us walk in your ways. Hear our prayers as we bring them before you this day. We ask this in your name. Amen.

A child is born for us, a son is given to us; dominion is laid on his shoulder, and he shall be called Wonderful-Counsellor. (Is 9)

Gracious and loving God, as we come to a close of yet another year in our life, the signs all around us remind us to recall what we have lived this past year. In doing so, we recall the gift of your Son and how he is the salvation of humankind. We give you praise and thanksgiving for all that has been and we pray in gratitude for your presence in our lives over this past year. May we grow in greater knowledge of who you are in our lives. We ask this in your name. Amen

Lord, As we said out farewells yesterday to the year 2003 and now have welcomed the year 2004 into our lives. I take this time to pray that you continue to look over these fine folks, for without them I may never have taken the steps that I have here with these Chapels. I also pray to you that you continue to look over all here during this New Year.

In your name God Bless.

[COLOR=sea-green]In the past God spoke to our fathers through the prophets; now He speaks to us through His Son. (Heb 1) [/COLOR]

Lord God, open our ears to hear the Words of your Son, touch our lips to proclaim your presence in our lives and in our world and heal our broken hearts so that we may love our neighbors. As we begin this new year, may we be living examples of your Son's actions on earth and be peacemakers in situtations that we find ourselves living in at this time. We ask this in your name. Amen
