A Happy and Blessed Christmas to all my Friends in the Blogosphere!


'God's sign is simplicity. God's sign is the baby. God's sign is that He makes Himself small for us. This is how He reigns. He does not come with power and outward splendour. He comes as a baby defenseless and in need of our help. He does not want to overwhelm us with His strength. He takes away our fear of His greatness. He asks for our love: so He makes Himself a child. He wants nothing other from us than our love, through which we spontaneously learn to enter into His feelings, His thoughts and His will; we learn to live with Him and to practice with Him that humility of renunciation that belongs to the very essence of love. God made himself small so that we could understand Him, welcome Him, and love Him.' (Pope Benedict XVI, Midnight Mass, 25 December 2006)

Hodie Christus natus est:

Hodie Salvator apparuit:

Hodie in terra canunt Angeli, laetantur Archangeli:

Hodie exsultant justi, dicentes:

Gloria in excelsis Deo.

Alleluia.

Noé, Noé, Noé!

Dear Father:

Merry Christmas. How blessed you are to live in such a wonderful country with her great traditions. Thanks for the Boar's Head lyrics.
In Christ, Karen P.
