Best wishes and Merry Christmas!

The tempest of life does not frighten one in whose heart shines the light of Thy divine Fire.
Around us are whirling storms and roaring winds; terror and darkness surround me;
but in my soul is peace and light. Christ is there! My heart is singing...

Kala Xristougenna!!!
Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

Merry Christmas to all:
http://www.trilulilu.ro/mik/30291f116f6553

"Rejoice , good man,
That we have reached holy Christmas
I tell in your house
Of the Most Pure, our Mother,
A handsome child was born
Christ is his name
In wheat straws,
And hay flowers,
Not like a nobleman's son,
But in the oxen's stable,
Slowly the oxen rocked him with their horns
All worshiped him,
all men that came from west and east.
These peaceful days
May you live them untroubled,
May Christ's birth
Be profitable to you,
Unto many years."
Excuse may poor and hasty translation.

To all those who celebrate Christmas on December 25th, and by anticipation to those who are going to celebrate in 12 days, a sincere Merry Christmas straight from Italy. May the Sun who has come to visit us shine on your lives and guide you all to life eternal!

Buon Natale!

Alex
