Word Made Flesh / Lives We Touch

An opening prayer from the last iteration of the Roman missal…

Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
our glory is to stand before the world
as your own sons and daughters.

May the simple beauty of Jesus’ birth
summon us always to love what is most deeply human
and to see your Word made flesh
reflected in those whose lives we touch…
