Christmas Day

"When, at Christmas, we place the statue of the Infant Jesus in the manger, the nativity scene comes alive. God appears as a child, for us to take into our arms. Beneath weakness and frailty, he conceals his power that creates and transforms all things. It seems impossible, yet it is true: in Jesus, God was a child, and in this way he wished to reveal the greatness of his love: by smiling and opening his arms to all." Admirabile signum by Pope Francis.

The pope continues to tell us that the birth of a child "awakens joy and wonder; it sets before us the great mystery of life."
