Natus Est....

In the wonder of the incarnation
your eternal Word has brought
to the eyes of faith

a new and radiant vision of your glory.

In him we see our God made visible

and so are caught up in love
of the God we cannot see....
* * *
To one and all -- those you love, those you serve and, above all, those most in need of the Light of this Holy Night; those who long for the rest of us to bring it to them, that we might all rejoice together in its gladness and none be left behind in darkness -- every wish for a beautiful, Blessed and Merry Christmas, and that, in every way, its riches and gifts will overflow for you and yours into the New Year and well beyond.

While we're at it, eternal thanks to this readership -- always and everywhere, the soul, heart, lifeblood and backbone of these pages -- for the constant gifts of goodness, spirit, selfless witness and, indeed, ceaseless surprises that fill every day with the joys and emotions of this Night and make this work a daily grace and lifetime's blessing to keep at... or, at least, try to.

Gloria in excelsis Deo, et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis....

Christus Natus Est -- venite adoremus!

Buon Natale a tutti --
Merry Christmas to all... God love you forever!
