Dear Family and Friends,
Christ is born; give glory!
Here is a wonderful telling of the true meaning of Christmas: the story of the birth of Jesus. Somehow art and song captures its beauty in a better way than commercialism, don't you think?
May your holiday be blessed and your new year happy!
With very best wishes,
Today in the Orthodox Church, here is what we sing:
Your Nativity, O Christ our God,
Has shone to the world the Light
For by it, those who worshipped the stars,
by a Star to adore You,
The Sun of Righteousness,
And to know You,
the Orient from on High.
O Lord, glory to You!
Today the Virgin gives birth to the Transcendent One,
earth offers a cave to the Unapproachable One!
Angels with shepherds
The wise men journey with a star!
Since for our sake
the Eternal God was born as a Little Child!
