This blessing was spoken last night during our Christmas Eve service. It is also my prayer for you, our dear readers, and my fellow hosts. May you all be filled to the full this coming year.
May He who by His incarnation gathered things earthly and heavenly into one, fill us with such joy that comes with the knowledge of the forgiveness of sins and the hope of eternal life. And the blessing of God Almighty–the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit–be upon you and remain with you always.
