Greed and Confusion of the Christmas Season

The afflicted and the needy seek water in vain, their tongues are parched with thirst. I, the Lord, will answer them. I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them. Isaiah 41:47

The greed and the confusion of the Christmas season is only symptomatic of the ills of the 24/7 pagan world. It's a world in need of salvation. In prayer, let us cry out . . .

R Lord, help us!

In the endless demands of the season:
- remind us it’s all about you. R

In the conflict and confusion of family and relationships gone awry:
- teach us to love like you. R

When the hungry and thirsty cry out amidst the spectacle of holiday greed:
- become their bread and their wine. R

When refugees, migrants and immigrants walk in uncertainty and fear along unknown roads:
- come to take them by the hand and guide them to a place they can call home. R

Let us pray . . .

May the God in whose ways our fathers Abraham and Isaac walked, the God who has been our shepherd from our birth to this day, the Angel who has delivered us from harm, bless us and keep us in peace. Amen (Genesis 48:15-16)
