The C-Word-Mass

“Make ready, O Bethlehem, for Eden is opened. Prepare, O Ephratha, for Adam and Eve are renewed. Salvation enters the world and the curse is destroyed. Make ready, O hearts of righteous men! Instead of myrrh, bring songs as an offering of wisdom. Receive salvation and immortality for your bodies and your souls. Behold, the Master who lays in a manger Urges us to complete our spiritual songs. Let us cry to Him without ceasing: O Lord, glory to Thee.”
