Advent, Alexandre Cabanel, Fallen Angel, L'Enfance du Christ, Minuit Chrétiens, Silent Night, Silkannthreades
I would like to direct you to Silence – an Advent Quest – Silent Night (Silkannthreades)
I read this post and other Advent posts from Silkannthreades in December 2018. They were inspiring. I remembered childhood. We waited through Advent and then attended Midnight Mass. The choir always sang Silent Night.
Silent Night has a story.
In our eyes, a child was born to Mary and Joseph, but unlike other children, He was God the Son. After Mass, we put a porcelain figure of Jesus in his crib. For us, He was born at midnight, as in Minuit, chrétiens (O Holy Night).
We had fallen, but we were redeemed.
I can still hear the silence.
Love to everyone 💕
