Columban Daily Prayer
June 7, 2023

Dear Jesus, I try to read slowly the story  
of Your birth as written in the Gospels  
of Sts. Matthew and Luke. 
I ask what meaning these words bring to me now. 
I might admire the fidelity of Joseph to Mary  
in spite of the town gossip about her pregnancy. 
I see the love and care of Mary  
wrapping You in swaddling clothes. 
Help me to grow in compassion and love.


— By a Columban Missionary
