Prayer from the Catholic Tradition


On Christmas Day, you might light a candle  to mark the birth of Christ, and pray Grace before you start your festive meal.

you are light for our world,
and light for our lives.
On this Christmas Day,
we thank you for your gift of love,
and we ask that you will help us
to live our lives lovingly
today and every day.

Light the candle.

Lord our God,
bless this food
which we are about to eat
and bless those who have prepared it.
We ask this through your Son,
born today and living in our midst,
now and for ever.
