Year B- Nativity of Our Lord - Birth of Jesus
15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let us go now to Bethlehem and see this thing that has taken place, which the Lord has made known to us."
Inspiration of the Holy Spirit - From the Sacred Heart of JesusAlthough many generations had been waiting for the coming of the Messiah, only a few humble souls were worthy to be told of the great event that was taking place.
The angel of the Lord appeared to a few humble shepherds and the glory of God shone above them. They were terrified, but the angel said to them, "do not be afraid; for see - I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people:
to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord.
This will be a sign for you: you will find a child wrapped in bands of cloth and 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 heaven, and on earth peace among those whom he favors!"
This was the beginning of the good news of my coming into the world; the shepherds went to the manger and presented their respect worshipping the newborn savior of the world. They left praising God for the great fortune of humanity and participated the great event to everyone they could.
Salvation is here. I have come to save what was lost; to enlighten the world with my teachings and to save and sanctify with my grace. I have come to change hearts of stone to convert them into hearts of flesh, full of love and compassion. I have come to assume full responsibility for your sins with my death on the cross, to participate my salvation if you repent and amend your ways.
I am the bridge between heaven and earth. I invite you to walk with me into everlasting glory. Humble your self like the shepherds did, come and pay homage to your savior, rejoice in your salvation and share the good news.
