Merry Christmas!

What may we bring Thee, o Christ, since Thou hast appeared upon the earth as man for our sake? For each of the creatures made by Thee bringeth its thanksgiving to Thee: the Angels bring a hymn, the heavens a star, the wise men their gifts, the shepherds their amazement, the earth a cave, the desert a manger; and we, the Virgin Mother. O God before the ages, have mercy on us! (A hymn for Vespers of Christmas in the Byzantine Rite.)

On behalf of the publisher and writers of New Liturgical Movement, I wish all of our readers a Merry Christmas, and every blessing from the Child that is born unto us! By the prayers of the Holy Mother of God and all the Saints, may God grant the world peace in the coming year.
