The birth of the Christ Child is upon us!
The angels sing out, the Sheppard’s take care and the newborn enters the world he came to save.
In his homily last Christmas, Pope Francis shared these words:
Jesus entered our history; he has shared our journey. He came to free us from darkness and to grant us light. In him was revealed the grace, the mercy and the tender love of the Father: Jesus is love incarnate. He is not simply a teacher of wisdom, he is not an ideal for which we strive while knowing that we are hopelessly distant from it. He is the meaning of life and history, who has pitched his tent in our midst. May the blessing of our newborn Lord be upon us all.
