A little light burns

first one, then two, then three, then four

and then the Christ-child's at the door!

"This is what our Christmas celebration should be about. Like the magi, we should not be distracted by the power plays of earthly rulers or all the things that unbelievers pursue, but rather we should fall down in worship before the Lord who came to save us, offering the gifts of our faith, hope, and love, our repentance and our sacrifice. We should join in the heavenly praise of all those who now see Him face to face in all his glory and who ceaselessly sing: Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come! For worthy is the Lord God who created all things, and worthy is the Lamb who was slain to take away our sins."
--Abbot Joseph on this day of days
