Merry Christmas!

I leave you this evening, with a beautiful Polish Christmas Carol, "Wśród nocnej ciszy"
 ("In the Stillness of the Night,") sung by Polish opera great, Teresa Zylis-Gara, with the Poznan Boys Choir in the background.  Just past 3:40, she will blow your socks off.  Just make sure you have good speakers.  No scenery, just sound.

Lyrics translated:


In the silence of the night

In the silence of the night a voice radiates:
Stand up, shepherds, God is born for you!
Go as quick as you can
To Bethlehem you hurry
To greet the Lord.
They went, they found the sweet little child in the manger
With all the signs given to Him.
They venerated Him as God,
and while greeting Him they shouted
with great joy:
Oh, welcome Saviour, desired long ago,
Looked out for four thousand years
Kings, prophets awaited You,
But You manifested yourself
This night to us.
And we wait for You, the Lord,
but since You come to the voice of the priest,
We'll prostrate ourselves before You
Believing that You're under cover of
Bread and wine.

The obedient are not held captive by Holy Mother Church;
it is the disobedient who are held captive by the world!
