 Nativity Prayer:

Please use the following prayer in front of your nativity scene at your home. Turn your “decoration” into a place of prayer and reflection.

O Divine Redeemer Jesus Christ, prostrate before
Your crib, I believe You are the God of infinite
Majesty, even though I see You here as a
helpless babe. I humbly adore and thank You
for having so humbled Yourself for my salvation
as to will to be born in a manger. I thank You for
all You did for me in Bethlehem, for Your poverty
and humility, for Your nakedness, tears, cold
and sufferings. I desire to show You the tenderness
which Your Virgin Mother had toward
You. I hope to love You as she did. If only I
could praise You with the joy of the angels, that I
could kneel before You with the faith of St. Joseph,
and the simplicity of the shepherds. Uniting
myself with these first adorers at the crib, I
offer You the homage of my heart, and I beg that
You would be born spiritually in my soul. Make
me reflect in some degree the virtues of Your
holy nativity. Fill me with that spirit of poverty
and humility, which prompted You to assume the
weakness of our human nature, and to be born
amid destitution and suffering. Grant that from
this day forward, I may in all things seek Your
greater glory, and may enjoy that peace promised
to men of good will. I ask this through
Christ our Lord. Amen.
