Advent Joy : Christmas Rose

Audete, Gaudete !
Christus est natus
Ex Maria Virgine,
Gaudete !

Tempus adest gratiae,
Hoc quod optabamus;
Carmina laetitiae,
Devote reddamus.

Deus homo factus est,
Natura mirante;
Mundus renovatus est
A Christo regnante…

Welcome, little Christmas rose, into a big and troubled world. We are so happy you’ve made your journey safely, we could sing heartily.

The world is no closer to a binding, enactable accord on preventing catastrophic climate change, but at least the Durban United Nations conference is over, and many are therefore sleepily rejoicing.


…Ezechielis porta
Clausa pertransitur;
Unde lux est orta
Salus invenitur.

Ergo nostra concio,
Psallat iam in lustro;
Benedicat Domino:
Salus Regi nostro.

Audete, Gaudete !
Christus est natus
Ex Maria Virgine,
Gaudete !
