A Christmas blessing

Nativity scene beneath the altar at St Salvadors
Nativity scene beneath the altar at St Salvador’s, Stenhouse

May the Father,
who has loved the eternal Son
from the foundation of the world,
shed that love upon you his children.

May Christ,
who by his incarnation gathered into one
things earthly and heavenly
fill you with joy and peace,

May the Holy Spirit,
by whose overshadowing Mary became God-bearer,
give you grace to carry the good news of Christ.
Amen.
