The Child is Born By Hilaire Belloc In the midwinter and the turning of the year to new things, Christendom has fixed the Mass of the Incarnation: of the divine birth, the renewal, the recovery of mankind. Those who sneer at our origins tell us that the long dark Pagan time, which ended in … Continue reading Merry Christmas!
