Oh Great Mystery


If preparing for the holidays is wearing you out,
and you feel like you're drowning:
sit,
breathe,
and listen.



O magnum mysterium,
et admirabile sacramentum,
ut animalia viderent Dominum natum,
jacentem in praesepio!
Beata Virgo, cujus viscera
meruerunt portare
Dominum Christum.
Alleluia!

O great mystery,
and wonderful sacrament,
that animals should see the new-born Lord,
lying in a manger!
Blessed is the Virgin whose womb
was worthy to bear
Christ the Lord.
Alleluia!


May the love and wonder of the season feed and fill our spirits.

Merry Christmas.
