Accept, we pray, O Lord, these offerings we make,
gathered from among your gifts to us,
and may what you grant us to celebrate devoutly here below
gain for us the prize of eternal redemption.
Through Christ our Lord.
Prayer over the Offerings
1st Sunday of Advent
‘Love God and love your neighbour.’ This is how Jesus reminded his hearers of the spiritual tradition of Israel.
In Advent/Christmas we will spend more time than usual in prayer (?) making offering to God.
- What and how will we share with our neighbour?
