Isaiah 9: 2–7; Ps 96; Titus 2: 11–14; Luke 2: 1–14
Almighty God, you have given us your only–begotten Son to take our nature
upon him and as at this time to be born of a pure virgin: Grant that we, who
have been born again and made your children by adoption and grace, may daily
be renewed by your Holy Spirit; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
