Hodie Christus natus est pro nobis. . . .

When Thou showest Thy power, princely state shall be Thine; amid the splendour of the holy places, Thou art my Son, born before the daystar rises. Ps cix:3

Midnight Mass is beginning as I type this. But if I went to it I would never make it up in time to take my friend Carlo to the 10:00 a.m. at Santa Teresita, bone lazy clot that I am. But it's still good to think of Midnight Mass in the Serra Chapel and unite myself with it.

But that's enough for tonight. And you'll be delighted to know that the LAST MINUTE preparations were completed. I know you were worried.

A very Merry Christmas to all.

And so to bed.
