As the first night of Rosh Hashanah begins, May you immediately be inscribed in the Book of Life!
As the sun fades away, Christians mark the end of our observance of the Feast Nativity of the Blessed Virgin, the Jewish young woman whom we revere as theotokos.
"To the Israelites belonged the adoption, the glory, the covenant, the law-giving, the worship, and the promises; theirs were the patriarchs, and from the came the Messiah (I speak of human origins). Blessed forever be God who is over all! Amen" (Rom. 9:4-5- reading for Evening Prayer II for today's Feast of Our Lady's Nativity).
I might add that apples dipped in honey are delicious. This will be our dessert from this evening through Friday evening.
