St. Macarius the Great on the joy of Christ's Nativity.
In the midst of all the fun and presents of Christmas day, remember what St. Macarius the Great says about the importance of Christ’s birth:
Today the Lord is born, the life and salvation of mankind; today a reconciliation is made of Divinity to humanity, and of humanity to Divinity; today all creation has leapt for joy; those above sent toward those below; and those below towards those above; today occurred the death of darkness and the life of humanity; today a way was made toward God for man and a way for God into the soul.
"AFR was a major help in my conversion to Orthodoxy from Anglicanism. After so many years of wandering in the desert of the worldly conflicts consuming the Anglican Church, I am now at home in the Church as Our Lord intends it to be. Thank you so very much for this wonderful work you are doing. Thank you for helping me and others find our way to the Orthodox Faith. "
