La Epifanía

Oh Dios, que por la guía de una estrella manifestaste tu único Hijo a los pueblos de la tierra: Guía a tu presencia a los que ahora te conocemos por fe, para que veamos tu gloria cara a cara; mediante Jesucristo nuestro Señor, que vive y reina contigo y el Espíritu Santo, un solo Dios, ahora y por siempre. Amén.
I should have fótos of this evening's Epiphany service later tonight.

My root canal made me miss mine - I'll just have to live vicariously through yours, Mickey!

Bring on the fotos!

And I took French in High School/College, and find that, despite that, I can still read some of the prayer in Spanish, I think.

Does "mediante Jesucristo, nuestro Senor, que vive y reina contigo y el Espiritu Santo, un solo Dios, ahora y por siempre." Through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns forever in the Holy Spirit, one God, forver? (Or does this mean that I can at least recognize a doxology when I see one?)

Muchas gracias, Padre.

Vivo en Panama quatros años.

But I've forgotten -- no lo recuerdo -- much of the Spanish I used to know. That was many years ago, when I was a schoolgirl.

Glad to know there's someone else out in Christendom who observed la Epifanía tonight. It was a little bizarre for us cold-weather folks to walk out of church and find it still at about 50. Last year on Epiphany, it was 8, more like usual. Bendita fiesta Padre Mickey. The incense rose high tonight :)

I See You!
