Advent St. Nicholas Prayer

For those of you so inclined (the agnostic and/or non-Christian members of ASLaN have other traditions at this season of Light), the good folks over at the St. Nicholas Society, in the UK, have posted this very nice little Advent prayer:

Good St Nicholas,

Help us prepare for the miracle of the coming of Jesus.

Help us not to be blind to the gifts of getting ready.

Help us be sincere in the greetings we send and receive, with love and prayer.

Kind St. Nicholas, protect us from shoppers' fatigue, stress, overspending, yet help us to be kind and generous of heart to all, especially those who are alone, financial poor and fearful.

May our celebration of your feast lead others to see the true meaning f giving and receiving and to guide all people to

The greatest of all gifts, even Jesus Christ, prince of peace and child of Mary, Our Lord and only saviour.
