I’m here not because I am supposed to be here,
or because I’m trapped here,
but because I’d rather be with you
than anywhere else in the world.
~ Richard Bach, The Bridge Across Forever: A True Love Story
whose mighty Son was born in Bethlehem
those days long ago,
lead us to that same poor place,
where Mary laid her tiny Child.
And as we look on in wonder and praise,
make us welcome him in all new life,
see him in the poor,
and care for his handiwork
the earth, the sky and the sea.
O God, bless us again in your great love.
We pray for this through Christ our Lord.
