Merry Christmas!

A child is born for us, and a son is given to us.

To anyone anywhere, who may read this, 

Merry Christmas!

"Awake mankind! God became a human being to save you from death. If he had not been born in time, a happy eternal life would have been impossible for you. You never would have escaped your sins if he had not taken on your humanity.

It was only through his mercy that you escaped eternal unhappiness. You would have perished, had he not come. And so, let us joyfully celebrate the coming of our salvation and redemption.

Let us celebrate the festive day on which Jesus-God, he who is the great and Eternal Day, came from the great and endless day of eternity into our own short day of time."

Saint Augustine, Sermon 185, 1-2.
