Secundum carnem...


Nativitas carnis manifestatio est humanae naturae; partus Virginis divinae est virtutis indicium. Infantia parvuli ostenditur humilitate cunarum: magnitudo Altissimi declaratur vocibus Angelorum. Similis est rudimentis hominum, quem Herodes impie molitur occidere; sed Dominus est omnium quem Magi gaudent suppliciter adorare.

None the worse for having been used here aforetime.  For those of you who keep to the old customs, may I wish you all the temporal and spiritual blessings in the Infant Christ on this most sacred solemnity of His Birth.
