VIDEO: Chris Pratt Preaches From The Gospel Of Luke At 2018 Disneyland Candlelight Ceremony And Processional

Disneyland continues to honor the Christian roots of Christmas each year with its Candlelight Ceremony and Processional, featuring angelic choirs singing scripture-based Christmas carols. This year, Christian actor Chris Pratt told the story of Jesus' nativity from the Gospel of Luke.

"The Bible says, 'when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was," Pratt read. "That seems kind of confusing to me," he joked, "so I'll just paraphrase: she was kind of scared because an angel just fell from the ceiling!"

“Ladies and gentlemen, it was really my honor to share this beautiful Candlelight Ceremony with all of you,” Pratt said at the conclusion of the ceremony. “It’s been a very special and inspiring night."

"For me, being a parent has really changed my life in so many ways. And one of those ways is to understand, truly, the love that a father could have for a child,” he added. “The way we love our children, the more we love our children, the more we will understand the capacity for our Father in heaven to love us."

“Each and every one of us a precious creation, and he just marvels in the ways that we can try to please Him. That should give us a great deal of comfort. I know it does for me.”
