This is the second Sunday of the 12 Days of Christmas. Today’s gospel text from John 1 focuses on the mystery of the Incarnation in which “the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.”

Prayer of the Day
Almighty God, you have filled all the earth with the light of your incarnate Word. By your grace empower us to reflect your light in all that we do, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
