GOD'S PEACE — CHRIST IS BORN!
What shall we offer You, O Christ,
Who for our sakes have appeared on earth as a man?
Every creature made by You offers You thanks:
The Angels offer a hymn; the heavens, a star;
The Wise Men, gifts; the shepherds, their wonder;
The earth, its cave; the wilderness, a manger,
And we offer You a Virgin Mother!
(Nativity Vesperal Hymn)
To our much beloved Clergy and Monastics, Sons and Daughters,
Our dear Spiritual Children,
