«Today is born of the Virgin He, Who in His arms holds all creation.
…The Bridegroom of the Church receives the magi
and the Son of the Virgin receives from them gifts.
We bow before Your birth, O Christ!
Now manifest to us Your divine Theophany»
(Prefeast of Nativity of our Lord – Ninth Hour)
Christ is Born!
With the celebration of the Nativity of Christ and the New Year
may Our Lord’s blessings bring peace and joy
to every heart and every home,
sanctifying all our thoughts and intentions!
May all receive the light and warmth of the
Divine Love of Jesus Christ,
who hastens to generously gift each individual.
United with you in the joy of Christmas,
Mother Dia Stasiuk, OSBM, General Superior,
