DECEMBER 2018

 

"And his father Zechariah was filled with the Holy Spirit and prophesied, saying,
'Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for he has visited and redeemed his people
and has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David,
as he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets from of old,
that we should be saved from our enemies and the hand of all who hate us;
to show the mercy promised to our fathers 
and to remember his holy covenant, the oath that he swore to our father Abraham ...' "
Luke 1:67-73
