We Believe

"Our blessed Lord Jesus Christ, who, according to his transcendent love, became what we are to bring us to be what he is himself"  — St. Irenaeus

Holy Spirit, on this day of shocking divine humility and salvation, reveal to us the agreements that we have made with the darkness concerning the Lord Jesus Christ.  We want no more darkness.  In our culture of unbelief, we declare that we believe in Jesus Christ, the beloved, eternal and faithful Son of the Father (Homoousios to Patri), the One anointed in the Holy Spirit, incarnate, crucified, resurrected, and ascended Lord of all Creation, the Vicarious Man, Immanuel.

Merry Christmas to all.
