The Nativity of the Lord

“How beautiful upon the mountains
are the feet of him who brings glad tidings,
announcing peace, bearing good news,
announcing salvation, and saying to Zion,
“Your God is King!”

“And the Word became flesh
and made his dwelling among us,
and we saw his glory,
the glory as of the Father’s only Son,
full of grace and truth.”

Isaiah 52:7-10

Gospel of John, 1:1-18

Readings for Liturgy During the Day

Nativity of the Lord

Today is the Nativity of the Lord, the Savior promised to Israel in its days of suffering, who himself was born to suffer on the cross.  This day, God took on our humanity, and became himself the sacrifice and the promise of our future redemption.  Let us rejoice, all who believe in this promise and this gift, and share it with our fellow men this day, in love and charity proclaiming, “Christ our Salvation is born, let us sing out and worship him, in peace and truth.”
