Monday 5th December: What’s Advent Again?

The Sign of the Cross

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

 

Reflection

The theme of this school week is about Mary, the mother of Jesus, but first: what’s advent again??

Prayer

Thank you Father, for your patience with us;
Loving you one moment
Forgetting you the next
Thank you for your endless love
Which does not give up
But wants the best for us
Despite our faults
Thank you for your promise
To all who believe
And put their trust in you
Everlasting life
And in this Advent season
May the endless love of Jesus
Resound in hearts and minds
Drawing many to Him
Where they might find forgiveness
And knowledge of your plan for their lives.

Amen.

Our Father who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be thy name;
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us;
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of death. Amen.

Our Lady Queen of Peace pray for us.
St Joseph pray for us

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
