Christ is born! Glorify Him!
The hymn (troparion) for today’s Divine Liturgy for the Nativity of the Lord:
Prepare, O Bethlehem, for Eden has been opened to all! Adorn yourself, O Ephratha, for the tree of life blossoms forth from the Virgin in the cave!
Her womb is a spiritual paradise planted with the Divine Fruit:
If we eat of it, we shall live forever and not die like Adam. Christ comes to restore the image which He made in the beginning!
May you have a Blessed feast of Christmas! Pray for our Parish of Saint Ann.
