Please pray for those celebrating the Nativity of our Lord and Savior, especially for those in places where expressing the Faith is dangerous. Lord, have mercy.

Amen. I truly hope that our Coptic brothers under persecution by the servants of the Evil One get to enjoy the same peace and joy for this feast as our Russian and Serbian brothers, and those Greeks and people of other lands who celebrate this great feast of the Incarnation of the Lord with them.

I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

Lord have mercy on all who are persecuted. For our brethren on the old calendar, Christ is Born!

There is a cry among Copts today:  "We are not afraid.  We will celebrate the Incarnation and Nativity of our Lord."

Lord, have mercy!

Vain existence can never exist, for \\\"unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain.\\\" (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

Prayers that all of my brothers and sisters who serve the Nativity according to the Old Calendar have a Blessed and Joyful Feast. Prayers especially for those of our brethren, especially the Coptic Orthodox, who are at such risk in celebrating under conditions that threaten their very lives.

"Not only is it unnecessary to adopt the customs of the Latin Rite to manifest one's Catholicism, it is an offense against the unity of the Church."

- Melkite Archbishop Joseph (Tawil), of blessed memory

Lord, have mercy!

May everyone freely rejoice in the incarnation of our Lord and Savior!

Christ is born!  Glorify Him!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
