Christmas Day


Behold a virgin shall conceive and bear a son
and shall call his name Immanuel - Isaiah 7:14

Unto us a child is born,
unto is a son is given. - Isaiah 9:6

In this was manifested the love of God toward us,
because that God sent his only-begotten Son into the world that we might live through him. - 1 John 4:9

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessing in heavenly places in Christ. - Ephesians 1:3

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.


Almighty God, who has given us thy only-begotten Son to take our nature upon him, and as 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 the 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. Amen.

- Selections from The Book of Common Prayer 1962 Canada.
