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!
