The sign of Christmas has also been revealed to us: “a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes” (Lk 2:12). Like the Virgin Mary and Saint Joseph, like the shepherds of Bethlehem, may we welcome in the Baby Jesus the love of God made man for us. And may we commit ourselves, with the help of his grace, to making our world more human and more worthy for the children of today and of the future.
Pope Francis
 
 
Christmas is a time to rejoice and celebrate the birth of Christ, as well as a time for personal renewal. As Pope Francis has written, the “prophecy of Isaiah never ceases to touch us, especially when we hear it proclaimed in the liturgy of Christmas night. This is not simply an emotional or sentimental matter. It moves us because it states the deep reality of what we are: a people who walk, and all around us – and within us as well – there is darkness and light. In this night, as the spirit of darkness enfolds the world, there takes place anew the event which always amazes and surprises us: the people who walk see a great light. A light which makes us reflect on this mystery: the mystery of walking and seeing.
The Christmas season extends from Christmas Day until the Baptism of the Lord (which this year is on Jan. 13), including the Feast of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph (Dec. 30), the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God (Jan. 1 - New Year’s Day) and the Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord (Jan. 6).
May the blessings of the Christmas season be with you all year long!
