On this day of Jesus' birth, I'd like to share the following -
Consecration to the Child Jesus
Blessed Infant Jesus, kindly take us under Thy special protection. We promise to try to avoid displeasing Thee, and humbly ask Thee to bless us, and teach us to practice obedience, patience, and humility, the great virtues of Thy hidden life. Grant us to love Thee daily more and more, that, by so doing, we may merit to reign with Thee forever in Heaven. Amen.
