In the bleak midwinter is a favourite Christmas carol and it ends ‘What can I give him? Give my heart.’
Pray for people who may feel lonely this Christmas.
What shall we offer you, O Christ, Who for our sakes appeared on earth as man? Every creature made by you offers you thanks. The angels off you a hymn; the heavens, a star; The Magi, gifts; The shepherds, their wonder; The earth, a cave; And from our human race we offered you a Virgin Mother. God before all ages, have mercy upon us.- from the Festal Menaion of the Russian Orthodox Church – The Book of a Thousand Prayers compiled by Angela Ashwin
