Meeting Christ in His Mysteries

Redemption: The Christmas Meditation

Christmas is about the mystery of Christ, the work of redemption that the Savior came to accomplish, to take away our sins by dying and rising again.  The Byzantine liturgy in particular abounds in imagery drawn from the Jewish temple only now Mary is made into the throne for Jesus the true High Priest who will make purification for the whole human race.  Page 209
