First Sunday of Advent - Blessings on a holy Advent!

First Sunday of Advent

Almighty God, give us grace to cast away the works of

darkness, and put on the armor of light, now in the time of

this mortal life in which your Son Jesus Christ came to visit

us in great humility, that in the last day, when he shall come

again in his glorious majesty to judge both the living and the

dead, we may rise to the life immortal; trough him who lives

and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and

for ever. Amen.
