Christ is Born!
Thy Nativity, O Christ our God, hath shined upon the world the light of knowledge; for thereby, they that worshipped the stars were taught by a star to worship Thee, the Sun of Righteousness, and to know Thee, the Dayspring from on high. O Lord, glory be to Thee. (Troparion of the Nativity)
Today the virgin giveth birth to Him Who is above all being, and the earth offereth a cave to Him Whom no man can approach. Angels with shepherds give glory, and magi journey with a star. For our sake is born a Young Child, the Pre-eternal God! (Kontakion of the Nativity)
Wishing you a blessed Nativity Feast from the Early family: Fr. James, Kh. Jennifer, Audrey, Courtney, Beth, and Christine.
I'll be traveling over the next few days, so it will be well into next week before I make my next post. May the Lord bless you all.
