When the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son…

Ultimately, every human being must face this question: What do you think of Jesus Christ? Whose Son is He? We must answer this question with belief and action. We must not only believe something about Jesus, but we must do something about Him. We must accept Him or reject Him. ~ Billy Graham, The Jesus Generation, 1971


And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. ~ Luke 2:8-14

Sometimes it seems there is little in this world today that is silent, holy, calm, or bright. However noisy, unholy, frenetic, or dark it may appear to be, music such as the immortal hymn, “Silent Night,” carries with it a feeling that can remind us there is still an abundance of virtue all around us. There is hope and beauty. And there is light.

To properly paint this feeling, The Piano Guys (link below) collaborated with none other than the tenor legend, Plácido Domingo, whose sublime vocal gift is rivaled by his kindness and sincerity. An artist whose illustrious, exalted career has not snuffed out his sweet disposition nor his genuine love for the art of music.

Joining them in the performance of Silent Night, are the children from the Cathedral School Choristers, whose pure faith proclaim the profound message of this hymn, filmed in the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in New York City (one of the largest cathedrals in the world) during an East coast tour. A colossal monument to the greatest gift ever given, the Son of God …. Gloria In Excelsis Deo a Silent Night…

Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump; for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.  ~ I Corinthians 15:51-53

Angels from the realms of glory, Wing your flight o’er all the earth; Ye who sang creation’s story, Now proclaim Messiah’s birth Gloria, (Gloria) / Gloria!  In excelsis deo Gloria, In excelsis deo / Gloria / Gloria / Gloria! … (bridge) … / Though an infant now we view him / He shall fill his Father’s throne / Gather all the nations to him / Every knee shall then bow down / Gloria, In excelsis deo / Gloria, In excelsis deo / Gloria, In excelsis deo / Gloria, In excelsis deo /

May your Christmas this year be filled with serenity, spirituality, peace, and felicity. Merry Christmas from me and mine to you and yours, and may God Bless you with peace, good health and prosperity in 2020. Gloria!
