Celebrations all around!

Today is an exciting day regardless of what calendar you are on–

For those on the Western Calendar today is the Feast of the Theophany of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

And for those who are on the Julian Calendar today is Christmas Eve.

Troparion – Tone 4

Mary was of David¹s seed,
so she went with Joseph to register in Bethlehem.
She bore in her womb the Fruit not sown by man.
The time for the birth was at hand.
Since there was no room at the inn,
the cave became a beautiful palace for the Queen.
Christ is born, raising up the image that fell of old.

Kontakion – Tone 3

Today the Virgin comes to the cave
to give birth to the Eternal Word.
Hear the glad tidings and rejoice, O universe!
Glorify with the angels and the shepherds
the Eternal God, who is willing to appear as a little child!
