Fourth Sunday in Advent

<b>Korean Nativity</b> 1.png

It was winter.
The wind blew from the steppes.
The child was cold
In the grotto on the slope of the hill. ...

The Magi stood in the shadowy den;
They whispered in stammering words.
Suddenly, from the dark, they were nudged
To move a little aside from the manger;
They looked around; like a guest at the threshold,
The Christmas Star gazed upon the maid.

(Boris Pasternak, "Christmas Star")
