SILENT NIGHT – 2

 

The Silent Night Memorial Chapel:

Silent Night Chapel

It was a time of fear, political turmoil,   cultural changes,  economic uncertainty, the likely takeover of Europe by an emperor —  and yet a tenor, a bass, and a guitar brought forth one of the loveliest hymns in the Christian  world, on behalf of the actual birth of this world’s Messiah.

“Silent Night.”

The hymn testifies to the power of the Holy Infant to bring peace into men’s hearts.

I was in pursuit of that song tonight, I wanted to sing it with other people,  but I didn’t find it.  That was a minor thing.    I found the power and reality of the Infant Jesus, wanting, desiring, longing to commune with us.

Deo gratias.

Merry Christmas everyone.
