A Christmas Prayer for Peace

In the true spirit of Christmas, we want to share with you a Christmas Prayer for Peace. Amidst the hustle and bustle, the essence of Christmas lies in the universal message of peace and goodwill. Let us heal our world and spread love together in prayer. At The Leo House, we embrace the spirit of Christmas by opening our doors to all. In this way, we foster an environment of warmth and hospitality. In the midst of all the holiday cheer, we’re reminded that kindness knows no boundaries. We extend our hearts to everyone who graces our humble abode. Let us imagine that we can join hands in a heartfelt Christmas prayer for peace. 

A Christmas Prayer for Peace

Dear Heavenly Father,  

As the snow falls gently on the streets of New York, may it symbolize the purity and renewal of our hearts. In this season of joy and togetherness, we lift our hearts in gratitude for the people that surround us. 

We lift our hearts in gratitude for the precious gift of your Son, Jesus Christ, whose birth we celebrate with reverence and awe. 

Regardless of our backgrounds, beliefs, or nationalities, may we find common ground in the spirit of love and kindness. Grant us the wisdom to embrace one another with open hearts, to seek understanding in our differences, and to celebrate the beauty of humanity. 

Grant us the wisdom to emulate the humility and kindness of the Holy Family. In the spirit of the Nativity, may we recognize the sanctity of each individual, acknowledging that we are all brothers and sisters in Christ.  

Bless our city, and all cities, with the peace that transcends understanding, a peace that emanates from the Prince of Peace Himself. May the joy of the angels' proclamation resound in our hearts, bringing joy to all those who seek refuge in The Leo House. 

In the midst of the holiday festivities, let us be mindful of those less fortunate, extending a helping hand to those in need. In a world often divided, we pray for peace that transcends borders and bridges the gaps between us.  

May the magic of Christmas inspire us to be better, to love unconditionally, and to cultivate a spirit of compassion that lasts beyond the holiday season.  As we gather around the Christmas tree and exchange gifts, let us remember the greatest gift of all - the gift of love. 

In this sacred moment, we offer our heartfelt gratitude for the blessings bestowed upon us and pray for a world where kindness prevails. In your divine presence, we find hope for a future where peace reigns supreme. 


Christmastime in New York City

New York City during the holiday season is a spectacle to behold. The iconic Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree stands tall, adorned with sparkling lights and ornaments, casting a warm glow over the city. The streets are alive with excitement as people take in the beautiful decorations and sights. The smell of roasting chestnuts from street vendors is sweet and alluring. If you know, you know. There is a thrilling energy here like no where else. We would like to bless New York City with a season of joy and splendor. May all of our guests at The Leo House find solace, comfort, and a sense of belonging. May our guests share in the warmth of our hospitality and feel at home through their travels. We hope guests visiting family members in the hospitals nearby feel some relief of having a somewhere to stay while showing love for their family. 

As the festive lights illuminate the buildings of New York City, The Leo House extends its warmest wishes for a season filled with joy, love, and peace. Together, let us be beacons of light. Let us also spread the message of peace in every interaction, smile, and gesture. May our shared moments and kindness therefore ddbe a testament to the power of unity. May the prayer for peace echo in the hearts of all who pass through our doors. Wishing you a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year from The Leo House family to yours.
