I wish all of my cyberfriends a blessed Christmas and the joy which the world cannot give or take away. For spiritual reflections I highly recommend Don Marco at Vultus Christi. Here is a beautiful meditation on the face of the Christ Child.
December 22: O Rex Gentium
O King of nations, and their desired One, and the cornerstone that makes both one; come and save man whom thou formed out of earth.
December 23: O Emmanuel
O Emmanuel, our King and Lawgiver, the Expectation and Savior of the nations! come and save us, O Lord our God!
Now all is fulfilled....Ecce completa sunt omnia....(Lauds of December 23) Share
