Manastirea Camarzani – Leru-i Doamne ler / Hallelujah, Lord, hallelujah

Choir of Monastery Camarzani, Romania

“Hallelujah, Lord, hallelujah, from the high sky
Gabriel descends to the Holy Virgin
willing to tell her what Son she will give birth to
the Son of Man, the Son of God
Hallelujah, Lord, hallelujah, from the high sky
the Son descends to the Holy Virgin
and through the Holy Ghost comes on Earth
willing to suffer, to save us
Hallelujah, Lord, hallelujah, from the high sky
the angels descend to the Holy Virgin
and to those shepherds by the sheeps
that have listened and rejoyced
Hallelujah, Lord, hallelujah, to those under the sky
Virgin Mary gives birth to Messiah
Bethleem accepts on straw in a crib
that Maria today gives birth to Messiah
Hallelujah, Lord, hallelujah, on Earth and in the sky
great joy through the Holy Virgin
the angels praise, the kings dance
the shepherds run to see Christ
Hallelujah, Lord, hallelujah, to those under the sky
through the Holy Virgin great joy
from her Son, from God
over you to be till eternity
from her Son, from God
over you to be till eternity
Hallelujah, Lord, hallelujah, on Earth and in the sky”

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Choir of Monastery Camarzani, Romania

Three kings from East

“Three kings from East with the star have traveled
and have traveled as we read all the way to Jerusalem
and there if they arrived the star in cloud has hidden
and they started searching at the houses asking
“Don’t you know, did you not find out
where is the Baby King
the Shepherd of Peoples and the Lord of harvests
that today was born, for we saw His star
and we came to bow, Christ to praise.”
“Go and search ,ask  further
if you happen to find Him tell the world
for the world to bow to him as to the Son of God
as to the Lord of the Sky and the Emperor of Heaven.
And put in front of Him the holy gifts
incense, gold and  myrrh as for Great Kingdom
and from now to eternity God’s mercy may be with us
may be as it was at Christ’s birth.””

Sanctus

Holy is He,
descending among us,
innocent as a child
but greater than all kings in His humility.

Blessed is His name
for He is eternal  love.
Christ is born, Christ is among us
and will always be.

Sadness

tumblr_lywv4zUvYI1qfeetco1_500

Sadness,
silent language that articulates
this huge void screaming in us
for the loved ones we miss

it’s a hole in our heart
that can only be filled
with their genuine
impossible to counterfeit love

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Christmas time is a time of hope and joy, for God descended among us to give us His holy hand to erase our sins and lift our forehead from darkness. He made us the greatest gift that exists, the gift of love and sacrifice.
May you all have a Merry Happy Blessed Christmas surrounded by all you need , not that much by material things but more by love and peace and hope. And if we are blessed with all we need we should also be greatful and share a little with those that are not that fortunate. Let us think of the ones that are alone, poor, forgotten, sick, those names that are never called, those who enter their home without a word, who have no bread, no warmth, no hope. If each of us would do a tiny little act of goodness today and every day, this world would become a paradise.

Be happy and reflect on life. God is among us, unseen, unknown, hiding under gloomy beggar clothes at the corner of your street.
Be good and goodness will follow you , be someone’s blessing and you will be blessed for the rest of your days.
Merry Christmas My Friends!

Ela.

You and I

Bow+and+Arrow

Long before Time
God shaped You into a bow
and Me into an arrow

There’s no way I can push
the limits of this existence
without leaning on You.

Darling, darling, darling, light of my eyes
Darling, darling, darling, within my heart
Because of the brilliance of your eyes

my same heartbeat…
