Joy For Christmas

Merry Christmas! Gospel according to Luke 2:10-11 “…Do not be afraid.  I bring you good news  that will cause great joy  for all the people!  Today in the town of David  a Savior has been born to you;  he is the Messiah, the Lord.”

Merry Christmas!
Gospel according to Luke 2:10-11
“…Do not be afraid.
I bring you good news
that will cause great joy
for all the people!
Today in the town of David
a Savior has been born to you;
he is the Messiah, the Lord.”

 

Wishing you all joy, blessings and merriness on Christmas Day and a wonderful 2015, filled with love, peace and compassion. Ina Vukic, Prof. (Zgb); B.A., M.A.Ps. (Syd)

Enjoy this Croatian Christmas hymn performed by Vice Vukov in 1996, the year after much of the Croatian territory was liberated from occupation:

Rejoice the nations,

Jesus is born at a blessed moment,

All nations hear, hear,

and to Bethlehem approach,

approach!

All nations hear, hear,

and to Bethlehem approach,

approach!

See God’s sacrament in the ragged stable,

and who suffers prickling of that hard straw,

that sacrament hear, hear

and to manger approach!

aproach!
Maria with Joseph rejoice watching,

the Angel flying above sings “Gloria”

and you the whole World,

greet the Saviour!

greet!
