A Prayer as I Put on My Mask

Creator,
as I prepare to go into the world,

as I love myself.

Advent Wreath Lighting Prayer

Today, let us follow our own star to the manger.  Know that by undertaking our strenuous journey to the truth, seeking joy that the world cannot give us, we will be changed in the process.  When we will finally meet Christ and see who He really is, we will never be the same.  We will not be able to go back to “business as usual” but with hope, peace, joy, and love we will share His mission with others.
