When Joseph woke up. he did what the angel of the Lord had told him to do: he took his wife to his home.

Matthew 1:24

God-with-us, you came and made your home among us.

Nurtured and protected by Joseph and Mary.

As we prepare to celebrate your birtyh, be with us now

Especially those who are seeking refuge, who long for a place to call home.

Comfort and protect them, O Lord.  Amen
