From the book of Wisdom: ‘For while gentle silence enveloped all things, and night in its swift course was now half gone, thy all-powerful word leaped from heaven, from the royal throne …’

And from St John: ‘And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father’.

Let us love and praise our Lord in His Incarnation, and may God bless you this day.
