Advent/Nativity Fast ~ Day 5 ~ Abraham ~ Christ is Born, Glorify Him!

Wow this was such a rich chapter! I loved the WHOLE excerpt from St. Gregory Nazianzen the Theologian and it was quite difficult to pick what I put into my commonplace. I was tempted to enter the whole 3 pages worth! Ha!

"Christ is in the flesh, rejoice with trembling and with joy; with trembling because of your sins, and with joy because of your hope."

"He that was without a mother (being begotten from the Father before all ages) now becomes without a father (being born of the Virgin)."

~ Father Thomas Hopko ~ Quoting Saint Gregory Nazianzen the Theologian from his oration On the Theophany or Nativity of Christ ~ The Winter Pascha ~
