Sunday After Christmas

The Christmas season begins with the celebration of Christmas. It continues in the twelve days following that. The celebration of the birth of Jesus continues with the celebration of the infant Jesus and all that He has done for us and for our salvation. As everything in the Church Year delivers Christ to us and points us to the cross, so in the Christmas season we are drawn to the cross with the words of Simeon concerning the Christ Child. He was born and He lived a life that we could not, without sin, yet suffering for our sin so that we may have life.

Collect of the Day
O God, our Maker and Redeemer, You wonderfully created us and in the incarnation of Your Son yet more wondrously restored our human nature. Grant that we may ever be alive in Him who made Himself to be like us; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
