The Sound of silence – a Christmas Meditation
Blessed Coptic Christmas dear friends,
I hope and pray that you are enjoying the first few days of 2021.
My family and I are eagerly anticipating Christmas eve to celebrate the “reason for the season” as they say: the birth of Christ.
Ever wondered what it sounded like when our Savior was born?
Normally, a birth is a rather noisy event. What with the voices of the family members, the baby, the medical staff, the machines, and countless other sounds. But that was not the case for our Lord or for the Holy Virgin Saint Mary.
It was a rather quiet event.
Something Saint Mary was very familiar with!
Until very recently, I had not given it much thought. Until I had the blessing of collaborating on a meditation for CYC, inspired by the work of Father Tadros Malaty and edited by my beloved friend, Ireini Ghobri.
I hope you enjoy it and that we all benefit from the example set forth by our Holy Theotokos.
I quietly wish you a Blessed Christmas!
