Adoration Of The Child Adoration Of The Child

Traditional Proclamation of the Birth of Christ



Note: The following is taken from the Roman Martyrology. For a thousand years or more and throughout all of Christendom it was read on Christmas Eve before the celebration of Midnight Mass. This was back in the days when Catholics still believed every dogma of the Catholic Faith, however, including the inerrancy of Scripture (beginning with Genesis and Creation). Please God, in your infinite mercy restore our Faith in You this Christmas, so that we may once again believe as our fathers did. Let us live again, let us become Christians again.

A happy and holy Christmas to all and a blessed New Year to what’s left of the Catholic remnant throughout the world. A Child is born in Bethlehem, Exult for joy, Jerusalem! Lo, He who reigns above the skies, there in a manger lowly lies. Alleluia. MJM

 

The twenty-fifth day of December.
In the five thousand one hundred and ninety-ninth year of the creation of the world
from the time when God in the beginning created the heavens and the earth;
the two thousand nine hundred and fifty-seventh year after the flood;
the two thousand and fifteenth year from the birth of Abraham;
the one thousand five hundred and tenth year from Moses
and the going forth of the people of Israel from Egypt;
the one thousand and thirty-second year from David's being anointed king;
in the sixty-fifth week according to the prophecy of Daniel;
in the one hundred and ninety-fourth Olympiad;
the seven hundred and fifty-second year from the foundation of the city of Rome;
the forty second year of the reign of Octavian Augustus;
the whole world being at peace,
in the sixth age of the world,
Jesus Christ the eternal God and Son of the eternal Father,
desiring to sanctify the world by his most merciful coming,
being conceived by the Holy Spirit,
and nine months having passed since his conception,
was born in Bethlehem of Judea of the Virgin Mary,
being made flesh.
The Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ according to the flesh.
