On the Second Sunday after Christmas Day the (0) Fool, the arcana for the liturgical season of Christmas, remains alone, yet not alone, for the solar light shines upon him and prevents him from erring in his way as he journeys through the Land of the Shadow of Death.
ALMIGHTY God, who hast poured upon us the new light of thine incarnate Word; Grant that the same light enkindled in our hearts may shine forth in our lives; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.Book of Common Prayer, 1928 edition
