Question of the day: Who is interested in your background and ancestry?
Genesis takes us back to the creator,
Back to Judah we go,
Lions whelp and prowess to show,
Our ultimate vindicator.
Justice and peace, concepts in our time difficult to find,
Please God endow you’re the king,
That your afflicted may have peace through the creator’s offspring,
Then might we all slow down And unwind.
Matthew wants to prove a point,-
The Son of God born of a virgin womb,
His lineage goes back to David the King, passing through many tombs,
Between the Creator and the Son, for all time joined.
The O antiphons begin(eight more days): O Wisdom on high,
Reminding us that Christmas is nigh
