Holy Infant Jesus, bless and protect us.

In the tender compassion of our God the dawn from on high shall break upon us, to shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death, and to guide our feet into the way of peace. (Lk 1 78-79)

When peaceful stillness compassed everything and the night in its swift course was half spent, Your all-powerful word from heaven's royal thrown bounded [...].  And as he alighted [...], he still reached to heaven, while he stood upon the earth. (Wisdom 18: 14-16)

And the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. (Jn 1:14)

Sister Marie, guiding star, on this holy night radiant with the splendor of Jesus Christ our light, lead us safely to our Infant Savior where we can adore Him in the arms of His holy Mother.  Amen.
