The Mystery of Christmas

Holy Gospel according to Saint John 1:1-14 (extracts) INthe beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. It was the true Light which enlightens every man who comes into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world knew Him not. He came into His own domain, and His own received Him not. But to all those who received Him, He gave the power to become sons of God; He gave this power to all who believe in His Name, who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. AND THE WORD WAS MADE FLESH, AND DWELT AMONG US. And we saw His glory, His glory as of the Only-begotten of the Father; we saw Him full of grace and truth.
