Inspiring Thoughts (Octave Of Christmas)

Yesterday we celebrated the birth in time of our eternal King. Today we celebrate the triumphant suffering of his soldier (St Stephen). Yesterday our king, clothed in his robe of flesh, left his place in the virgin’s womb and graciously visited the world. Today his soldier leaves the tabernacle of his body and goes triumphantly to heaven.

Saint Fulgentius of Ruspe
