Christmas Advent Calendar – Day 25

December 25, 2007

Tuesday December 25th

Give us a new birth . . .
as we celebrate the beginning of your Son’s life on earth.

-Christmas Vigil Mass

The holy Christ is born in me today.

Watch with me, angels, watch with me today. Let all God’s holy Thoughts surround me, and be still with me while Heaven’s Son is born. Let earthly sounds be quiet, and the sights to which I am accustomed disappear. Let Christ be welcomed where He is at home. And let Him hear the sounds He understands, and see but sights that show His Father’s Love. Let Him no longer be a stranger here, for He is born again in me today.

Your Son is welcome, Father. He has come to save me from the evil self I made. He is the Self That You have given me. He is but what I really am in truth. He is the Son You love above all things. He is my Self as You created me. It is not Christ That can be crucified. Safe in Your Arms let me receive Your Son.

  1. Updated lyrics to Christmas carol: O little town of Bethlehem
    OLD LYRICS:
    O little town of Bethlehem
    How still we see thee lie
    Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
    The silent stars go by
    Yet in thy dark streets shineth
    The everlasting Light
    The hopes and fears of all the years
    Are met in thee tonight.

    For Christ is born of Mary
    And gathered all above
    While mortals sleep, the angels keep
    Their watch of wondering love
    O morning stars together
    Proclaim the holy birth
    And praises sing to God the King
    And Peace to all on earth!

    How silently, how silently
    The wondrous gift is given!
    So God imparts to human hearts
    The blessings of His heaven.
    No ear may hear his His coming,
    But in this world of sin,
    Where meek souls will receive him still,
    The dear Christ enters in.

    O holy Child of Bethlehem
    Descend to us, we pray
    Cast out our sin and enter in
    Be born to us today
    We hear the Christmas angels
    The great glad tidings tell
    O come to us, abide with us
    Our Lord Emmanuel!

    NEW LYRICS:
    They’ve cancelled Christmas in Bethlehem
    They’ve cancelled peace in Bethlehem
    In a land once known as holy the gun is in control
    They’ve cancelled Christmas in Bethlehem
    They’ve cancelled freedom in Bethlehem
    They’ve cancelled hope in Bethlehem
    They’ve locked the little town behind a ghetto wall
    They’ve cancelled Christmas in Bethlehem

    Though angels are singing – they’re trapped behind the wall
    Yet angels keep singing down in Beit Sahour
    And if our Christmas songs and prayers are not to be in vain
    We must pull down that prison wall that’s strangling Bethlehem
    The wall must fall – the wall must fall
    If peace on earth is to come
    The wall must fall.

    They’ve cancelled wise men in Bethlehem
    They’ve cancelled shepherds in Bethlehem
    They’ve stopped the wise men at the checkpoint
    and the shepherds can’t leave home
    They’re under curfew in Bethlehem.

    Though angels are singing – they’re trapped behind the wall
    Yet angels keep singing down in Beit Sahour
    And if our Christmas songs and prayers are not to be in vain
    We must pull down that prison wall that’s strangling Bethlehem
    The wall must fall – the wall must fall
    If peace on earth is to come
    The wall must fall.

    The wall must fall – the wall must fall
    If peace on earth is to come
    The wall must fall.
