THIRD SUNDAY OF ADVENT
DECEMBER 15, 2019
O God, who see how your people faithfully await the feast of the Lord's Nativity, enable us, we pray, to attain the joys of so great a salvation and to celebrate them always with solemn worship and glad rejoicing. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, you Son, who lives and reigns with God the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
