Verbum caro factum est et habitavit in nobis

Et vidimus gloriam eius,
gloriam quasi Unigeniti a Patre,
plenum gratiae et veritatis

In principio erat Verbum,
et Verbum erat apud Deum,
et Deus erat Verbum

Et vidimus gloriam eius,
gloriam quasi Unigeniti a Patre,
plenum gratiae et veritatis


“And the Word was made flesh,
and dwelt among us,
(and we beheld his glory,
the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,)
full of grace and truth.”

The Gospel of St. John | Ch. 1:14
