Merry Christmas


The Twenty-fifth Day of December,/ when ages beyond number had run their course/ from the creation of the world,/ when God in the beginning created heaven and earth,/ and formed man in his own likeness;/ when century upon century had passed/ since the Almighty set his bow in the clouds after the Great Flood,/ as a sign of covenant and peace;/ in the twenty-first century since Abraham, our father in faith,/ came out of Ur of the Chaldees;/ in the thirteenth century since the People of Israel were led by Moses/ in the Exodus from Egypt;/ around the thousandth year since David was anointed King;/ in the sixty-fifth week of the prophecy of Daniel;/ in the one hundred and ninety-fourth Olympiad;/ in the year seven hundred and fifty-two/ since the foundation of the City of Rome;/ in the forty-second year of the reign of Caesar Octavian Augustus,/ the whole world being at peace,/ Jesus Christ, eternal God and Son of the eternal Father,/ desiring to consecrate the world by his most loving presence,/ was conceived by the Holy Spirit,/ and when nine months had passed since his conception,/ was born of the Virgin Mary in Bethlehem of Judah, and was made man:

The Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ according to the flesh.

Merry Christmas


David and Marie
