The Solemnity of the Nativity of the Lord
"Behold, the virgin shall be with child and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel." - Matthew 1:23
The liturgical season of Christmas begins with the vigil Masses on Christmas Eve and concludes on the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, which this season is January 8, 2023. Christmas is one of the most important days of the Church year, second only to Easter itself. During the Christmas season, we celebrate the birth of Christ. It is the feast of the Incarnation, the feast of God becoming flesh. The Christmas season is a time to reflect on the gift of salvation that is born with him, including the fact that Christ was born to die for us.
