We have arrived.

We are settled on the precipice of our goal. Tonight the anticipation ends after the long season of Advent.

Merry Christmas!

But in the morning, the anticipation begins anew as Advent continues.

Wait well, my friends, wait well.

A Prayer for The Nativity of our Lord from The Book of Common Prayer

O God, you have caused this holy night to shine with the brightness of the true Light: Grant that we, who have known the mystery of that Light on earth, may also enjoy him perfectly in heaven; where with you and the Holy Spirit he lives and reigns, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.
