Advent Day Twelve

Sunday, December 12, 2021


Happy Third Sunday of Advent, My Lovelies!  I hope your Advent Season has been a blessed one so far.

Today's Chrismon isn't exactly the prettiest one, but it has been used as a Christian symbol for centuries.

This Chrismon combines the Greek letters Chi (X) and Rho (P), the first two letters in the Greek word for Christ.  Another interpretation is based on the Latin Christus Rex, "Christ the King."

NOTE:  Sometimes this Chrismon shows the "X" as a cross.

Today's scripture:

Mary’s Song

And Mary said:

“My soul glorifies the Lord
     and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
     for he has been mindful
     of the humble state of his servant.
From now on all generations will call me blessed,
    for the Mighty One has done great things for me—
    holy is his name.
His mercy extends to those who fear him,
    from generation to generation.
He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;
    he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
He has brought down rulers from their thrones
    but has lifted up the humble.
He has filled the hungry with good things
    but has sent the rich away empty.
He has helped his servant Israel,
    remembering to be merciful
to Abraham and his descendants forever,
    just as he promised our ancestors.”

Mary stayed with Elizabeth for about three months and then returned home.

Until next time...
