As we light our third Advent candle we pray, O Lord, that all Mankind will come to know that our human happiness can only be built on the foundation stones of true Justice, Love and Peace.
Bless us and all who are faithfully preparing your way by working to secure these three pillars of life and light in the power of your unfailing love for us all. This we pray through Christ our Lord. Amen
