Sufficient for the Day

Luke 2: 4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.


  1. "Cælum et terra transibunt, verba autem mea non præteribunt."

    In the immortal (but still not miraculous) words of the late, great, Catholic "Tory anarchist" Joseph Sobran: "He didn't just perform miracles; he spoke miracles." Merry Christmas, Bionic!

  2. Merry Christmas!
    "And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us".

  3. I'm a little late to the party, but Merry Christmas everyone! I took a few days away from the CPU to recoup some brain cells and spend time with family.

    1. You are the smartest one of the bunch, then!

      In any case, we still have Orthodox Christmas ahead of us, so you have a chance to improve your class participation grade.

    2. Two Christmases in one year?! Count me in! It's good to be a 'hallway' sort of Christian.

    3. If only my parents understood this when I was young....
