CHRISTMAS PASTORAL OF THE HIERARCHS OF THE UKRAINIAN CATHOLIC CHURCH
IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
To Our Reverend Clergy, Reverend Religious, and to the Faithful,
Christ is Born!
Christmas begins with the joyful proclamation of good news. An angel of heaven announces to the shepherds that the Savior has been born. It is good news which cannot be contained. It is announced and celebrated in heaven and on earth by glorious choirs and lowly shepherds. We joyfully proclaim in our beautiful traditional way that “God is among us!” It is constantly repeated many times during the evening Compline Service. It is as if we cannot say it enough!
