To This World’s Night

cs Cmas banner 02

From Bede the Venerable, a reflection on the feast just begun for the Eastern Hemisphere, and soon to come for us in the West:

Christ is the morning Star,
who, when the night of this world is past,
gives to his saints the promise of the light of life,
and opens everlasting day.

The Lord Jesus cannot come soon enough to this world’s night, don’t you think?
