~PASTORAL ADDRESS FOR THE NATIVITY OF CHRIST 2019~
TO THE FAITHFUL WHO ARE WORKING OUT THEIR SALVATION
AT THE SPIRITUAL HOME OF HOLY TRINITY
Dearly Beloved Of The Lord,
I greet all of you with anticipation of the coming Feast of the Birth of Our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ!
This feast of the Nativity in the Flesh of our Lord is a reminder to all of us that 'heaven and earth today make glad' and angels and men 'keep spiritual feast, for God born of a woman, has appeared in the flesh to those that sit in darkness and shadow.' The light that we receive today is not merely a physical light that pierces the gloom which surrounds us but rather a transfiguring light that both reveals God's Love for us and inspires us to grow in our love for God.
Brethren, Matushka Victoria and myself love all of you so very much! Our prayer is that when the Feast arrives may all of us here at this wonderful parish family be worthy to exclaim in one voice that:
CHRIST IS BORN! GLORIFY HIM!
With Love In The New Born Christ,
