Reader: Christ has appeared among us.
All: Come, let us adore Him.
Reader: The precious gifts
which the Magi brought to the Lord this day are threefold,
And they are signs of divine mysteries.
By the gold the power of the King is signified,
By frankincense His great priesthood,
By myrrh the burial of the Lord.
The Magi worshipped the Author of our salvation in the crib,
And of their treasures they brought to Him gifts of mystic nature.
A blessed Christmas to all! Remember Christmas ends on Jan 13th this year, the feast of the Baptism of Jesus.
