And in that region there were shepherds out in the field,
keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord
appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and
they were filled with fear. And the angel said to them, "Be not
afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which will
come to all the people; for to you is born this day in the city of
David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord".
How wonderful it is that we have the freedom to remember and
celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, who brought with him the way to
peace, love and justice! May the grace of God and Jesus' teachings
permeate into every life so we can all actively participate in the
reconciliation of God's Creation.
