The sun fell almost five hours ago here in the plains of Kansas. With the Church Trimphant and the Church Militant throughout the world, we raise our voices in praise and thanksgiving for the Incarnation. Gloia in excelsis Deo. In that spirit (and a slight nip of single-malt Scotch), I wish everyone who reads this blog, whether you agree with me or not, a Merry Christmas.
For those of you who want to see something interesting, see how the Gospel reading for tonight looked like in English 1000 years ago.
