The Prayer of Blessing of the Baby Jesus crib figures
God, our Father you so loved humankind
that you sent us your only Son Jesus, born of the Virgin Mary,
to save us and lead us back to you.
We pray that with your Blessing these images of Jesus,
who is about to come among us,
may be a sign of your presence and love in our homes.
Good Father, give your Blessing to us too,
to our parents, to our families and to our friends.
Open our hearts, so that we may be able
to receive Jesus in joy, always do what he asks
and see him in all those who are in need of our love.
We ask you this in the name of Jesus,
your beloved Son who comes to give the world peace.
He lives and reigns forever and ever.
