Христос рождается, славите Его!

I just got back home from Beijing, after having the privilege to attend the Liturgy at Christmas at the church there. The birth of Our Lord and the end of the Nativity Fast give us a lot to be grateful for! The very intrusion into history of God as a small child, the very fact that the power of Herod and the wealthy of Jerusalem were made to fear the child of homeless wanderers and refugees, the very truth that in this child was contained the salvation of the world, that in this child God himself would make of himself a sacrifice to deliver us all from the power of death - if all of this indeed is not worth remembering in gratitude, then nothing possibly can be! Christ is born; let’s glorify him!

A very merry Christmas to all!
