BethlehemOriginal text — O Jesus, who to redeem us from sin and to restore us to grace, didst deign in thy infinite love to be born in the Manger of this lowly Stable. I humble myself before thee and adore in thy human nature the true Son of God. As a mark of special mercy, come, I beg of thee, to be born again in my heart shorn of every virtue and fill it with thy love that I may be always inflamed with love of Thee.

“Let us love the Divine Babe of Bethlehem.” St. Francis of Assisi
