“And Joseph too went up from Galilee from the town of Nazareth to Judea, to the city of David that is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, to be enrolled with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child.
While they were there, the time came for her to have her child, and she gave birth to her firstborn son. She wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.”
Gospel of Lucas 2,3-8
How simple and at the same time how wonderful are the words from the Gospel! “The time came and she gave birth.” In a peaceful glorious night Mary gives birth to God made human. To the hope and love for the world from here to the eternity!
I invite you to meditate on this Gospel’s words. To spend some time thinking in how big and at the same time how simple is the love of God incarnated to save us.
This Christmas, the St. Catherine of Siena School Community prays together for you, your family and loved ones so you may receive the love, peace, joy,and blessings that the little baby Jesus brings to the world!
