The Seventh Day of Christmas

Nativity  Lorenzo the Elder Costa

Matthew 1:22-25
So all this was done that it might be fulfilled 
which was spoken by the Lord 
Dream of St. Joseph  Francisco de Goya
through the prophet, saying: 
the virgin shall be with child, 
and bear a Son, 
and they shall call His name Immanuel,” 
which is translated, “God with us.” 
Then Joseph, 
being aroused from sleep, 
did as the angel of the Lord commanded him 
and took to him his wife,
and did not know her 
till she had brought forth her firstborn Son.
And he called His name JESUS.
