In the Priory’s Christmas 2018 newsletter, Br. David Bryan writes:
The beloved bidding prayer for the Cambridge Advent Festival of Lessons and Carols says:
May we allow ourselves to encounter God’s grace during this hallowed time. The encounter might come as we hear the majestic words of holy scripture or the beauty of music; perhaps in the solemnity of ritual, colour and forms of decoration or in loving acts and generous care for others, and in places and times of quiet prayer.
