Merry Christmas, 2016
‘Grant, O merciful God, that HE Who was born this day to be the Saviour of the world, as He is the Author of our divine birth, so may be Himself the Bestower of our immortality; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord.’
Almighty God, who hast given us thy only-begotten Son to take our nature upon him, and at this time to be born of a pure Virgin: grant that we, being regenerate, and made thy children by adoption and grace, may daily be renewed by thy Holy Spirit. Through the same our Lord, Jesus Christ. Who liveth and reigneth with thee and the same Spirit ever, one God, world without end.
