The Forerunner Sounds the Trumpet of Glory

Today is born the voice of the Word of God, the best man to Christ the Bridegroom, the one who broke the curse of the barrenness of his mother, and loosed the tongue of his father, for it was not fitting for Zachary to remain silent when the Voice appeared. Nothing shall be called impossible for God for through the Holy Forerunner God is glorified, for the barren woman, well beyond the years of the ways of women, conceives and bears a son and God's creation bows to Him by moving beyond its own limits to glorify Him, for when God wills it, the law of nature, which He Himself established, is abolished to offer unto Him an offering worthy of His Divine Nature to proclaim His glory to the nations. Thus, this day the Forerunner heralds the glory of Christ the Bridegroom who is coming in glory with great mercy for His Bride.
