Merry Christmas

"And it came to pass in those days that a decree
Went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world
Should be registered. This census first took place
While Quirinius was governing Syria.
So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city.
Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city
Of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of
The line and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary,
His betrothed wife, who was with child.
So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed
For her to be delivered. And she brought forth
Her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths,
And laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them
In the inn.
Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the
Fields, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them,
And the glory of the Lord shone around them,
And they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them,
"Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings
Of great joy which will be to all people.
For there is born to you this day in the
City of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
And this will be a sign to you: You will find a Babe
Wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger."
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the
Heavenly host praising God and saying,
"Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!"
So it was, when the angels had gone away from them
Into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another,
"Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing
That has come to pass, which the Lord
Has made known to us."
And they came with haste and found Mary
And Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger.
Now when they had seen Him, they made
widely known the saying which was told them
Concerning this Child. And all those who heard
It marveled at those things which were told
Them by the shepherds.
But Mary kept all these things and pondered
Them in her heart. Then the shepherds returned,
Glorifying and praising God for all the things
That they had heard and seen, as it was told them."
Hey everybody! Merry Christmas! May you and your family have a blessed and joyful day! Let us remember our Lord's heart and love for us during this wonderful time of celebration!
"Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace,
Goodwill toward men!"
