Daily Prayer & Reading for December 25, 2022

Christmas Day

Almighty God and Father of light, a Child is born to us, a Son is given to us. Your eternal Word came down from Heaven in the silent watches of the night, and now we are filled with wonder at the wonder of our God. Open my heart to receive His life, that I may be filled with His glory and peace. Amen.

Audio of daily prayer read by Fr. Uribe OMI

John 1:1-18

In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God.
All things came to be through him,
and without him nothing came to be.
What came to be through him was life,
and this life was the light of the human race;
the light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness has not overcome it.
A man named John was sent from God.
He came for testimony, to testify to the light,
so that all might believe through him.
He was not the light,
but came to testify to the light.
The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.
He was in the world,
and the world came to be through him,
but the world did not know him.
He came to what was his own,
but his own people did not accept him.
But to those who did accept him
he gave power to become children of God,
to those who believe in his name,
who were born not by natural generation
nor by human choice nor by a man’s decision
but of God.
And the Word became flesh
and made his dwelling among us,
and we saw his glory,
the glory as of the Father’s only Son,
full of grace and truth.
John testified to him and cried out, saying,
“This was he of whom I said,
‘The one who is coming after me ranks ahead of me
because he existed before me.’”
From his fullness we have all received,
grace in place of grace,
because while the law was given through Moses,
grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
No one has ever seen God.
The only Son, God, who is at the Father’s side,
has revealed him.

Día de Navidad

Dios todopoderoso y Padre de la luz, ha nacido un Niño entre nosotros, un Hijo se nos ha dado. Tu Palabra eterna bajó del cielo en las silenciosas vigilias de la noche, y ahora nos llenamos de asombro ante la maravilla de nuestro Dios. Abre mi corazón para recibir su vida, para que me llene de su gloria y de su paz. Amén.

Audio de la oración diaira leída por el p. Uribe, OMI 

Jn 1:1-18

En el principio ya existía aquel que es la Palabra,
y aquel que es la Palabra estaba con Dios y era Dios.
Ya en el principio él estaba con Dios.
Todas las cosas vinieron a la existencia por él
y sin él nada empezó de cuanto existe.
Él era la vida, y la vida era la luz de los hombres.
La luz brilla en las tinieblas
y las tinieblas no la recibieron.
Hubo un hombre enviado por Dios, que se llamaba Juan.
Éste vino como testigo, para dar testimonio de la luz,
para que todos creyeran por medio de él.
Él no era la luz, sino testigo de la luz.
Aquel que es la Palabra era la luz verdadera,
que ilumina a todo hombre que viene a este mundo.
En el mundo estaba;
el mundo había sido hecho por él
y, sin embargo, el mundo no lo conoció.
Vino a los suyos y los suyos no lo recibieron;
pero a todos los que lo recibieron
les concedió poder llegar a ser hijos de Dios,
a los que creen en su nombre,
los cuales no nacieron de la sangre,
ni del deseo de la carne, ni por voluntad del hombre,
sino que nacieron de Dios.
Y aquel que es la Palabra se hizo hombre
y habitó entre nosotros.
Hemos visto su gloria,
gloria que le corresponde como a unigénito del Padre,
lleno de gracia y de verdad.
Juan el Bautista dio testimonio de él, clamando:
“A éste me refería cuando dije:
‘El que viene después de mí, tiene precedencia sobre mí,
porque ya existía antes que yo’ ”.
De su plenitud hemos recibido todos gracia sobre gracia.
Porque la ley fue dada por medio de Moisés,
mientras que la gracia y la verdad vinieron por Jesucristo.
A Dios nadie lo ha visto jamás.
El Hijo unigénito, que está en el seno del Padre,
es quien lo ha revelado.
