“The Greatest Story Ever Told ” Luke 2: 1-14 by Fr Jim Willig

MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and your family from everyone at Heart to Heart!  May you feel the hope, love, and joy that the infant Jesus brings forth to all of us!

The Scripture reading chosen is from the Gospel of Luke that will be read on Christmas at Midnight. It is the account of Joseph and Mary going to Bethlehem for the census. Mary gives birth to Jesus and wraps Him in swaddling clothes. She lays him in the manger.

The angel of the Lord appear to shepherds who were in the fields tending their flocks. The angel said,“Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy
that will be for all the people. For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Christ and Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find an infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.”

And suddenly there was a multitude of the heavenly host with the angel,
praising God and saying: “Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
