Everyone’s singing carols and Christmas hymns and getting in the spirit; I did too this evening, and loved it, beautiful. I like Adeste Fidelis, O Come, All Ye Faithful, what words! Lo he abhors not the Virgin’s womb, or the refrain itself, O come all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant.
There’s a grandeur, magnificence and intimacy to that. At least there is for me, the joyful swell of the faithful greeting the Word made Flesh, come into the world as a baby. The gates of hell, says the word, will not prevail against such a thing.
Here’s a different expression of the same mystery, from Russia.
