Christmas at Sinai

Ὁ οὐρανὸς καὶ ἡ γῆ, σήμερον ἡνώθησαν, τεχθέντος τοῦ Χριστοῦ. Σήμερον Θεὸς ἐπὶ γῆς παραγέγονε, καὶ ἄνθρωπος εἰς οὐρανοὺς ἀναβέβηκε.

Heaven and earth are united today, for Christ is born. Today hath God come upon earth, and man gone up to heaven.

Λύτρωσιν ἀπέστειλε Κύριος τῷ λαῷ αὐτοῦ. The Lord hath sent redemption unto his people. (Psalm 111:9)

All the lamps are lit for the Christmas services, shining like multi-coloured stars floating just overhead.

The lamps over the relics of Saint Catherine.

Candlelight reflecting off the worn stones on the floor of the sanctuary.
