Beloved in Christ

Christ is born!

Glorify Him!  

 

Twenty centuries have passed since the moment of Godís Incarnation.  The Heavens drew closer to mankind and the angels and shepherds glorified the Creator, who for us men and for our salvation came down from on high.  Today when we celebrate the jubilee of this greatest event in the history of mankind, let us rejoice in spirit, be filled with wisdom and bring worthy gifts to the Divine Child: frankincense of sweet prayers, myrrh of the purity of our lives, and the gold of our strong and pure faith, which is purified in the crucible of fasting and abstinence.  And then God himself will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away. (Rev. 21:4)  And nothing can darken the joy of this celebration and affirmation of the Christian faith.

Godís joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full (John 15:11).  

With love in our Lord, assuming the image of a servant
