MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.

Christ is born for us! Come, all of you who are seeking the face of God. Here He is, the Child lying in a manger.
(Pope Francis, Twitter, December 25, 2018)

By contemplating God, who became a child, radiating light from the humility of the crib, we can also become witnesses of humility, tenderness and goodness.
(Pope Francis, Twitter, December 24, 2018)

It is truly right and just, our duty and our salvation,
always and everywhere to give you thanks,
Lord, holy Father, almighty and eternal God.
For in the mystery of the Word made flesh
a new light of your glory has shone upon the eyes of our mind,
so that, as we recognize in him God made visible,
we may be caught us through him in love of things invisible.
And so, with Angels and Archangels,
with Thrones and Dominions,
and with all the hosts and Powers of heaven,
we sing the hymn of your glory,
as without end we acclaim: Holy …
(Preface I of the Nativity of the Lord Christ the Light)
