Christ is Born! Let us Glorify Him!
His Grace, Bishop Michael, offers an Archpastoral Letter to the faithful of the diocese on the celebration of our Lord's Nativity. In part, he writes: "Once again we come upon the 'most wonderful time of the year,' as the song goes. What exactly does this mean? For some, it is simply the winter holiday season -- Frosty and Rudolph. For most, it is probably all about Santa, and making a list, and getting great gifts. Certainly for many others, Christmas is about the birth of a beautiful baby in Bethlehem … who grew up to be a great teacher, a gentle healer, perhaps even a miracle worker. But for us who are Orthodox Christians, the Feast of the Nativity is much more than all that."
