As we bless the Advent wreath we hold in prayer special intentions-
"O God, by whose word all things are sanctified, pour forth thy blessing upon this wreath and grant that we who use it may prepare our hearts for the coming
of Christ and may receive from thee abundant graces through Christ our Lord. Amen"
(Received on prayer card. Source unlisted.)
May those who have gone before us enter in the eternal kingdom of God. For us as his followers may we be sustained
and found courageous until he returns for us. We wait in silence for the movement of God who is ever-with us.
