#adventbookclub Day 15: Zechariah

Not much time to write today, but just to say how much I love Zechariah’s words in the “Benedictus”, and value the daily saying of them in Morning Prayer. A daily reminder that “In the tender compassion of our God, the dawn from on high shall break upon us,” is as true today (and every day) as it has ever been, and shall ever be.

Here is a link to the “Benedictus” being chanted in Latin (with English subtitles and some beautiful images), which I think really captures the timeless nature of Zachariah’s prayer: “Benedictus”
