From the Book of Wisdom: ‘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,
into the midst of the land that was doomed, a stern warrior carrying the sharp sword of thy authentic command …’

And so the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory. As we progress through these wondrous days, in the midst of so much suffering and death, let us place all our hope and trust in Him, the One who has come to redeem. May God bless you this day.
