Prayer for Putting Christmas Decorations Away

For many Catholics, today (or next week, the Baptism of the Lord, or Candlemas Feb. 2) is the day to take down Christmas decorations. Here’s a prayer to say to make it more meaningful:

“Lord Jesus, today we will put all of our Christmas decorations away. Soon, we will enter into Ordinary Time.

“Our house will look ordinary again, but Lord, you know and we know that our house has a secret. Deep inside it, all of our Christmas decorations are still here. The blessing of Christmas is always with us, kept in the deep, quiet places of the house.

“And Lord, our lives will become ordinary again, but you know that each of us has the grace of baptism. The grace you gave us is always with us, in the deep, quiet places of our soul.

“Help our house be a home with Christmas at its core, and help our souls be a place where Jesus always dwells. Help us live the grace of Christmas every day, only without all the trappings. Amen.”

    On Christmas within:

    JE SUIS
    CHRIST:
    JESU(I)S–
    SINFUL “I” AM
    WASHED INTO
    JESUS

    At the end of the rope
    No hope
    Dope
    Can’t cope
    Mope
    Lope:
    With help of the pope
    To Jesus–grace-filled soap–
    To be named JESU(I)S
