He is born!

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life“. (John 3:16)

With profound gratitude for the amazing support I have received via this blog I wish you all a blessed, joyous and very merry Christmas! May the New Year of 2020 bring you success and content in all that you do! Ina Vukic


Come, good people, to the stable
Hasten to the manger-side
Come, behold the Infant holy
Come and see the blessed Child
Come and follow, one and all
Come see him lying in the stall
For he is born, the Child divine

Faithful shepherds watching ever
O’er their flocks by dark of night
Wondering, fearing, tidings hearing
‘Mid a glorious, shining light
Music ringing, Angels singing
News of joy and comfort bringing
He is born, the Child divine

(Sally DeFord)

  3. The Whitechapel Whelk says:

    That reminds me, I should have gone to Mass this morning but had to drive my wife to work. I shall try to make Vespers at 4.30. Merry Christmas to you and yours, Ina 🙂

    • Merry Christmas “Whelk”! I attended Midnight Mass at Sydney’s St Mary’s Cathedral – life just will not do without experiencing the joy of “He is born” as bell ring at midnight!

      • The Whitechapel Whelk says:

        That must have been very beautiful, Ina. I try to attend the 10.30 Latin Mass at Westminster Cathedral (my local) every Sunday but I don’t do confession. Father O’Brien told me it would take too long 😉
        A very merry and a blessed Christmas to you and yours.

      • Well well well Whelk, let’s just say that sometimes confession made during the mass may suffice 🙂 Hope you had a beaut Christmas Day and Happy New Year!
