At Cathedral Mass today the St Cyprian's Cathedral Junior Church group
decorated a Jesse Tree:
And, later, a young person assisted in the
lighting of the fourth candle at the Advent Wreath.
Blessed are you, sovereign Lord, merciful and gentle:
to you be praise and glory for ever.
Your light has shone in our darkened world
through the child-bearing of blessed Mary;
grant that we who have seen your glory
may daily be renewed in your image
and prepared like her for the coming of your Son,
who is the Lord and Saviour of all.
Blessed be God for ever.

O Rex Gentium
O King of the nations and the fulfilment of their longing, you are the corner stone and you make all one, you formed us from primeval clay: come and save us.
