You have to remind kids to stay connected to the meaning of Christmas.
Sometimes it takes a little bit of effort, but it’s so worth it.
~ Caroline Kennedy
Glory to You, O Christ our God, glory to You!
May Christ our True God, whose Nativity we celebrate, through the intercessions of His holy and pure Mother, through the power of the life-giving Cross, through the protection of the Angelic Powers, through the prayers of St. John the Baptist, the supplications of the Holy Apostles, Martyrs, Fathers and Mothers of our Faith, and all the saints, have mercy on us and save us.
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God have mercy on us and save us.
(Orthodox Christmas prayer 1)
1 The majority of Orthodox Christians celebrate Christmas on January 7th.
