Christmas – The Nativity of the Lord – Mass at Dawn: 2nd Reading

Titus 3:4-7

When the kindness and generous love
   of God our savior appeared,
not because of any righteous deeds we had done
   but because of his mercy,
he saved us through the bath of rebirth
   and renewal by the Holy Spirit,
whom he richly poured out on us
   through Jesus Christ our savior,
so that we might be justified by his grace
   and become heirs in hope of eternal life.
