The Opening Prayer (Collect) of today’s Mass for the Fourth Sunday of Advent is the concluding prayer of the “Angelus.”
Here’s a brief video clip about this beautiful prayer.
The clip concludes with an invitation to pray together. So right now, before you watch, take a moment to call to mind the intention for which you want to pray.
Now let’s watch, and pray, united with the many people who will watch this clip and who are joining you in prayer with you and for you, and for your intentions.
O Key of David
and sceptre of the House of Israel!
You open and no one closes,
You close and no one opens:
Come and lead out of prison the captive
who sits in darkness and the shadow of death.
