A Prayer on the First Day of Advent

Lord, On this first day of Advent, give me the grace to slow down.
Let me travel with the wise Kings, following the rising star and seeking advice as I travel.
Let me select gifts to bring that may be worthy of your saving birth and help me to encounter people along the Advent way, truly encounter them in a way that is meaningful and rooted in the Christian call.
As the journey begin Lord, I place its destination in your hands and truly pray with my entire being, that I may fall to my knees and praise your name. Amen.

From Fr.Vincent Sherlock  ” Let Advent be Advent”
