now, one and all: in Faith let us celebrate the Annual Memorial of the Fathers before the Law, Abraham and those with him. Let us honour - as is right - the Tribe of Judah, and let us extol the Servants in Babylon, the Trinitys Image, who extinguished the furnace fire, and also Daniel. As we unerringly cling to the Predictions of the Prophets, together with Isaiah, we cry out with loud voices: Behold! The Virgin will Conceive in the Womb, and She will bear a Son, Emmanuel, which means God is with us!
