    A Special Festal Message-
Followed by a Fine Selection of Icons, Books and Gift Suggestions for this Holiday Season.

he Holy Nativity of Christ

Each year as we contemplate in this Holy Season the most significant fact of all of history--Christ is born on Earth as a little Child yet remains the Infinite God simultaneously--we are struck by this truth that was witnessed by so many of our community in Faith as the foundation of our Hope, Faith, and Love.  We say “Christ is Born!  Glorify Him!” And we rejoice that the Infinite has mysteriously become finite, the Unapproacable has become approachable, and the Unknowable Other has become the touchable and visible personal Savior of our souls and Lord of our lives.  He is near and dear, and so we are personally loved and cherished, and then invited to enter the Heavenly Kingdom within at the present time, as much as we are able.  Humble, vulnerable, meek, patient, loving, and merciful is Jesus Christ Who came down from Heaven to remake us fully into His Image and Likeness so that we can be God-bearers too with the Virgin Mary.  Let us rejoice with the Holy Angels and sing “Glory to God in the Highest, and on Earth, peace, goodwill towards men.”  Amen.
