¡GLORIA A JESUCRISTO! ¡GLORIA PARA SIEMPRE!
The Prefest Period of ChristmasMake ready, O Bethlehem, for Eden has been opened to all. Ephrathah, be alert, for the Tree of LIfe has blossomed forth from the Virgin in the cave. Her womb has become a spiritual paradise wherein the divine Fruit was planted, and if we eat of it we shall live and not die as did Adam. Christ is coming forth to bring back to life the likeness that had been lost in the beginning.
(Troparion - Tone 4)
