Chris Pratt Delivers the Truth About Christ's Birth at Disneyland's Christmas Celebration

Actor Chris Pratt recently headlined Disneyland's Christmas celebration by reading the true story of Christ's birth, telling the Christmas account from the Bible.

The overtly religious annual candlelight ceremony features local church choirs singing traditional hymns and readings from the Bible.

"About 2,000 years ago, God sent an angel named Gabriel to a city in Galilee named Nazareth to a virgin who was betrothed to a man named Joseph of the house of David," Pratt declared. "That virgin's name was Mary."

Pratt read from the Gospel of Luke, "The angel said to her, 'Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women.'"

"That angel said to her, 'Mary do not be afraid, you have found favor with God,'" he continued. And though Pratt stumbled on a few lines leading to a humorous moment, he delivered the angel's truth saying, "'You will conceive in your womb and bring forth a son, and you shall call this son Jesus.'"

Pratt ended the night with a personal Christmas message of his own. He said being a father has taught him a lot more about God's love.

"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," Pratt said.

"Each and every one of us a precious creation, and He just marvels in the ways that we can try to please Him," he said.

"And through this holiday spirit may we continue to spread peace and goodwill throughout the world. Thank you, and Merry Christmas!"

Pratt has been very public about his Christian faith, especially over this past year. Check out his mini-sermon to teens at the MTV Awards, where he told them, "God Is Real, Believe That."
