A Merry Christmas to all our readers of good will!

The Nativity by John Singleton Copley, one of colonial America's greatest painters. Curiously, just prior to the great turmoil that would severe America from the mother country, he moved to England to establish his fame there and eventually become a member of the Royal Academy.

Hail Mary, Full of Grace, The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of death. Amen.

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
