Nativity of our Lord and Saviour
« on: December 24, 2006, 08:11:56 AM »
Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I would like to take this time to thank you for the support and encouragement that you have provided me over this year thru the Orthodox Christianity. Net.  I ask in preparation for the Holy Nativity of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ that you forgive me of any offenses that I have done to you.

Troparion - Tone 4

Your Nativity, O Christ our God,
Has shone to the world the Light of wisdom!
For by it, those who worshipped the stars,
Were taught by a Star to adore You,
The Sun of Righteousness,
And to know You, the Orient from on High.
O Lord, glory to You!

Kontakion - Tone 3

Today the Virgin gives birth to the Transcendent One,
And the earth offers a cave to the Unapproachable One!
Angels with shepherds glorify Him!
The wise men journey with a star!
Since for our sake the Eternal God was born as a Little Child!   

CHRIST IS  BORN!  GLORIFY HIM!

In Christ,
Thomas

Hristos se naste!
Slaviti-l.
She hears, upon that water without sound,
A voice that cries, “The tomb in Palestine
Is not the porch of spirits lingering.
It is the grave of Jesus, where he lay.”
We live in an old chaos of the sun,
Or old dependency of day and night,
Or island solitude, unsponsored, free,
Of that wide water, inescapable.

Christos Razdajetsja!   Slavite Jeho!
Zastupnice christianov nepostydnaja, chodatajice ko Tvorcu nepreložnaja, ne prezri hr’išnych molenij hlasy, popredvari jako blahaja na pomošč nas, virno vopijuščich ti: Uskori na molitvu, i potščisja na umolenije, zastupajušči prisno Bohorodice, čtuščich t’a.
