I wish a joyful feast of Christ's Nativity and an auspicious and happy new year to all.

Christmas 2008

It's been a rough year for us and a there's a stretch of hard road to go, but there is always light on the horizon.

Audivit summo reverens
silentio terra.

Adhuc nunc alis devolant
per caelum expansis;
adhuc et cantus dispergunt
mortalibus fessis,
et tristes atque desertos
campos pervolitant,
semperque mundi strepitum
canentes superant.


The world in solemn stillness lay,
To hear the angels sing.

Still through the cloven skies they come
With peaceful wings unfurled,
And still their heavenly music floats
O’er all the weary world;
Above its sad and lowly plains,
They bend on hovering wing,
And ever over its Babel sounds
The blessèd angels sing.

It Came Upon the Midnight Clear
(Translated by Robert J.M. Lindsay)
