Advent Prayer:

O Lord Jesus Christ, make me worthy to understand the profound mystery of your holy incarnation, which you have worked for our sake and for our salvation.  Truly there is nothing so great and wonderful as this, that you , my God, should become a creature so that we could become like God.  You have humbled yourself and made yourself small, that we might be made mighty.  Blessed are you, O Lord, who came to earth as one of us.  Amen.       St. Angela of Foligno
