Keepsake Holiday Prayers to Use and Send


As an early holiday gift, Heart of the Nation has created three beautifully illustrated Catholic prayers for Thanksgiving, Advent, and Christmas. Please print and use these prayers at family gatherings, send them with your Christmas cards, and include them in your daily prayers.  

The prayers are also included in Heart of the Nation’s monthly bulletin for November. Each issue of the bulletin includes reflections from Heart of the Nation’s two chaplains, inspiring news, and information to help you celebrate your Catholic faith. If you don’t currently receive the newsletter and would like it mailed to you each month, please e-mail your name and postal address to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

  • Advent Prayer
    Advent Prayer Lord Jesus, during this Advent season of preparation, I give You thanks that You came to dwell among us. May You always find welcome in my heart. You came to share in our humanity. May I respond to the people around me with the love that You have given me to share. You came in humility, an infant laid in a manger. May I seek You in every place and circumstance. Amen.
