This Christmas, may the Lord grant us simplicity of heart, so that we may recognize his presence and love in the lowly Babe of Bethlehem, and, like the shepherds, return to our homes filled with ineffable joy and gladness.

Beautiful and timely words from the Pope.

Thanks for the post.

With St. Francis and his nativity, the defenseless love of God was shown, his humility and goodness, which in the incarnation of the Word is manifested to man so as to teach a new way to live and to love.

The Christ-Child laid on the wood of the manger prefigures His defenseless love lifted up from the earth on the Cross!
