A blessed Christmas to you

Image result for nativity art

For all the prayers, comments, readers and friendships developed here between us and amongst us, I thank you. On this Holy Day Christmas and in this Holy Season of Christmastide, may we be blessed by Our Lord and forgiven for our sins against He who Is the Saviour of the World. God bless you.

Jesu, Redemptor Omnium

Jesus, the Ransomer of man, 
Who, ere created light began, 
Didst from the sovereign Father spring, 
His power and glory equalling. 

The Father’s Light and Splendor Thou, 
Their endless Hope to Thee that bow; 
Accept the prayers and praise to-day 
That through the world Thy servants pay. 

Salvation’s Author, call to mind 
How, taking form of humankind, 
Born of a Virgin undefiled, 
Thou in man’s flesh becam’st a Child. 
Thus testifies the present day, 

Through every year in long array, 
That Thou, salvation’s source alone, 
Proceededst from the Father’s throne. 
The heavens above, the rolling main 
And all that earth’s wide realms contain, 
With joyous voice now loudly sing 

The glory of their new-born King. 
And we who, by Thy precious Blood 
From sin redeemed, are marked for God, 
On this the day that saw Thy birth, 
Sing the new song of ransomed earth. 

O Lord, the Virgin-born, to Thee 
Eternal praise and glory be, 
Whom with the Father we adore 
And Holy Ghost forevermore. Amen

Dear Vox,

Christ is Born!

Excerpt from Vespers:


When Augustus reigned alone on earth,
the many kingdoms of men came to an end;
and when You were made man of the pure Virgin,
the many gods of idolatry were made powerless.
The cities of the world passed under one single rule;
and the nations came to believe in one sovereign Godhead.
The peoples were enrolled by the decree of Caesar;
and we, the faithful, were enrolled in the name
of the divinity,
when You, our God, were made man.
Great is Your mercy: Lord, glory to You.

Vespers, Feast of the Nativity of Lord

God is with us! Understand all you nations, and submit yourselves, for God is with us!

Great Compline, Feast of the Nativity of Our Lord

A blessed Nativity to you and your family.

In the Infant King,

Faithfully in the Word Incarnate, the Son of God and the Son of Mary,

Fr. RP

I've already conveyed my profoundly sincere Christmas wishes to you Vox and Mrs. Vox, BUT I couldn't let everyone else do so on this post without saying so again! God bless you, dear and brave man! May you receive your Heavenly Reward! Meantime, the battle rages under the Standard of the Most High God! Christian love from Eirene x
