Word of God
“This is what love is: it is not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the means by which our sins are forgiven. Dear friends, if this is how God loved us, then we should love one another. No one has ever seen God, but if we love one another, God lives in union with us, and his love is made perfect in us.” (1 John 4: 10-12)
Prayer and Reflection
Today a Saviour is born!
In the stillness of the night God enters human history
through the birth of his only Son.
He is our peace and hope.
In him we praise God for his
goodness to us in giving us so great a gift. Amen.
