Blessing
Advent 2, Year C   
  

May our gracious and mighty God fill the valleys, lower the mountains, straighten the crooked, and smooth the way that all humanity may have an open path to security and peace.  

May the compassion of Jesus dwell in your hearts to prepare the way for our wholeness and blessing, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Christ.

May the indwelling of the Holy Spirit lead you to into repentance, to turn you from all selfish and destructive ways so that your love may overflow more and more as we await the day when all flesh shall see the salvation of God.

And the blessing of our wonderful God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, be with you and remain with you always. Amen.
