The Divine Infant Jesus, born of the Most Pure Virgin

Merry Christmas!!! =)

I just came home from midnight mass and thought why not post my favourite christmas carol while waiting for the rest of the family for something. :)

Here's a link to the book, the Mystical City of God by Ven. Mary of Agreda, (Book IV, Chapter IV) with a lot more on the Nativity and the scene, the sentiments, the Birth of our Redeemer and Saviour, dearest, loveliest Jesus. :) Here's also the link to the Christmas post last year with some insight from another book, Alone with God by Fr. Heyrmann.

And as we mentally contemplate the beautiful nativity scene, here's my favourite hymn, Silent Night, originally written in German in 1818, Stille Nacht.

Stille Nacht! Heilige Nacht!
Alles schläft; einsam wacht
Nur das traute hoch heilige Paar.
Holder Knab’ im lockigen Haar,
Schlafe in himmlischer Ruh!
Schlafe in himmlischer Ruh!

Stille Nacht! Heilige Nacht!
Gottes Sohn, o wie lacht
Lieb’ aus deinem göttlichen Mund,
Da uns schlägt die rettende Stund’.
Jesus in deiner Geburt!
Jesus in deiner Geburt!

O dearest baby Jesus!

Deus propitius esto mihi peccatori.

Jesus, Mary, I love Thee; Save Souls!

Jesu mitis et humilis corde, Fac cor nostrum secundum Cor tuum. (ter)
