Advent and Christmas Prayers from CRS
Pray these Advent and Christmas prayers in silent prayer or with your families, friends and faith communities.
As we mark the transforming season of Advent, we seek to commune with the Lord in a special way, and we give great thanks for his birth into our world and into our lives.
We wish you great joy in this season and invite you to join us in prayer.
Enjoy daily Advent prayers! Take time to pray and prepare for the coming of Christ with the CRS Advent Calendar.
An prayer that we will come to know Christ not merely as a child born in antiquity, or a king returning to us crowned in glory, but as he is born daily into the human heart
A prayer that we will show hospitality to all people who, like the Holy Family, are seeking shelter on a winter’s night
A Christmas prayer for a gathering around a nativity scene, which asks God to bless all families
A prayer of celebrating the coming of the Lord Jesus into this World
A prayer based on Matthew 25:40 that we recognize God in the poor and vulnerable, like the Magi recognized Christ in the Epiphany
A prayer that as the days go darker, and sometimes our spirits as well, still we sense the seed of something wonderful yearning to be born within us
