Gloria in excelsis Deo!

Now there were shepherds in that region living in the fields and keeping the night watch over their flock.  The angel of the Lord appeared to them and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were struck with great fear.  The angel said to them, 

“Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.  For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord.  And this will be a sign for you: you will find an infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.” 

And suddenly there was a multitude of the heavenly host with the angel, praising God and saying:

Gloria in excelsis Deo!

 and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.

Luke 2:8-14

Gloria in excelsis Deo!
 Let the earth rejoice, for the Lord is come!

May the peace that came upon that lowly stable fill your hearts today and always!

Meg, Neal, Luke, Matthew, Celia, Jude and Damien
