Prayer: Excerpt from “Draw Me into your Friendship” by David Fleming, S.J.

I continue to ask for the grace to know Jesus intimately…
To be able to enter into the deep-down stillness of this night…
The labors of the journey to Bethlehem, the struggles of finding a shelter, the poverty, hunger, thirst, the cold, the insults which meet the arrival of God-with-us:

All this from the beginning so that Jesus might die on the cross – for me.
