Let Us Pray

O Lord Jesus, who didst deign to forego
the greatness of the Incarnate Divinity and most Sacred Humanity,
so as to be born in time, and become a little child;
grant that we may acknowledge Infinite Wisdom in the silence of a child,
Power in weakness,
Majesty in abasement,
so that adoring thy humiliations on earth
we may contemplate thy glories in heaven.
who, with the Father and the Holy Ghost,
livest and reignest God, forever and ever. Amen
