Let earth receive her King.

The Season of Advent is upon us:


"Light your candles quietly, such candles as you possess, wherever you are."
-Alfred Delp

Lo, in the silent night
A child to God is born
And all is brought again
That ere was lost or lorn.

Could but thy soul, O man,
Become a silent night!
God would be born in thee
And set all things aright.
15th century

Said the king to the people ev'rywhere, listen to what I say
Pray for peace, people every-where, listen to what I say.
The Child, the Child, sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light
He will bring us goodness and light.
-Do You Hear What I Hear
