We worship Thy Nativity, O Christ! Show us also Thy divine Theophany. Audio.

LISTEN NOW

Synopsis: At the Vesperal Divine Liturgy on the Eve of Nativity, a homily about on of the hymns of the Royal Hours. It expresses the connection between Nativity and Theophany, and especially how we must feel and what we must desire as we contemplate the incarnation.

"Today He Who in essence is God intangible and holdeth all creation in His hand is born of the Virgin and creation in His hand is born of the virgin and wrapped in swaddling bands. He lieth in a manger Who established in a manger Who established the heavens by His word in the beginning. He is fed at the breast with milk Who rained down manna upon the people in the wilderness. The Bridegroom of the church summoneth the magi; the Son of the virgin receiveth their gifts.
We worship Thy Nativity, O Christ!
We worship Thy Nativity, O Christ!
Show us also Thy divine Theophany. "

    Father, Bless,

     
    Your words remind me of the scripture, "Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God."   The fact that I rarely see the Lord in all the many Theophanies in my life, reveals my lack of purity of heart.  Christ manifests Himself in every encounter with my neighbor but the beam in my eye keeps me from recognizing Him.
