Blessing of the Advent Wreath


Lord God, your Church joyfully awaits the coming of its Savior, who enlightens our hearts and dispels the darkness of ignorance and sin.

Pour forth your blessings upon us as we light the candles of this wreath; may their ligth reflect the splendor of Christ, who is Lord, for ever and ever. Amen.
