Preparing for the birth of Christ

“To prepare myself for Christmas by prayer and work and by furthering my interior life.

To call upon Christ upon the bottom of my heart to make me life fully my spiritual life and to work in me so complete an interior renewal that others shall feel its influence.

To act above all through this divine influence that lives in me, and to ask the blessed Master to enlighten other souls through me.

Christmas: feast of humility and sweetness and love, feast of the little ones and of the poor. One of the three great stages in the Redemption.”
