An artistic photograph of our life-size nativity scene here at our monastery after a beautiful snowfall is embellished with the beckoning words of the carol: "Come, come, come to the manger; children come to the children's King…"
Inside Greeting: Christmas Blessings
Inside (top) Poem: Dies Natalis by Benjamin Francis Musser
"A song as young as the youngest shepherd,
Yet old as the star that above him shone;
The Ancient of Days – a swaddled Infant,
Alpha–Omega together grown;
The word of Isaias come to flower;
The dove of the ark this day flown…
Never the same, yet always repeated;
Always the same, yet always new:
O Divine Paradox, O Sublime Mystery,
Time and Eernity one in view.
The Shepherds prone at the mangerside
Were I, and you, and you."
