Solemnity of the Nativity of the Lord (Christmas)  


There are four different sets of readings for Mass on the Solemnity of Christmas, so depending on which Mass you attend, you will hear the Gospel according to either Matthew, Luke, or John.  Here is Luke's infancy narrative for you to read and reflect on with your family. 


"You alone and your mother are more beautiful than any others, for there is no blemish in you nor any stains upon your mother. Who. . . can compare in beauty to these?" — St. Ephrem of Syria, Nisibene Hymns, 27.8
