For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
– Isaiah 9:6
From all of us at OnePeterFive, we wish you a Merry, blessed, and grace-filled Christmas and God’s abundant blessings in the new year!

Christ is Born!
Come, let us rejoice in the Lord
as we tell of the present mystery.
Destroyed is the middle wall of partition;
the flaming sword turns back, the cherubim withdraw from the tree of life,
and I partake of the delight of Paradise from which I was cast out through disobedience.
For the Father’s express Image, the Imprint of His eternity,
takes the form of a servant,
and without undergoing change He comes forth from a Mother who knew not wedlock.
For what He was, He has remained, true God:
and what He was not, He has taken upon Himself, becoming man through love for mankind.
To Him let us cry aloud:
God born of a Virgin, have mercy on us.
Vespers, Feast of the Nativity of Our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ
Merry Christmas to everyone and thanks to 1P5 for being a light in the darkness.
Everyone have a Mary Christmas.
Merry Christmas! May God bless you and your family!
Christ is Born!
Merry Christmas to Steve and family and ALL at 1P5! May the Christ Child bless you all with His love, peace and joy!
As we pass through the coming year, let the promises of this season strengthen us and be the image that is ever before us reminding us of the Depth of God’s Love for us. Pray for those who wonder where the authentic love that eludes them can be found, and if you get the chance, tell them it is as close as the broken sigh of a wordless prayer.
Just beautiful fniper!
Merry Christmas to all !!!
Steve, all graces and blessings to you and yours from the Infant’s Heart that is beating with profound love for us all.. May it reverberate out into this saddened world where so many are out in the cold. Come and warm yourselves by this pulsating Love.
