DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Messiah Child is Born: Today, our hearts and homes are filled with the gift of the great Joy of God.  In His infinite Humility God is incarnated as a human baby like us.  This is God’s unconditional Divine Love for us and all peoples.  Let us, praise God like the shepherds in today’s Gospel, and glorify Him with deep gratitude through our lives. 

  Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 2:6-14

Now it happened that, while Joseph and Mary were in Bethlehem, the time came for Mary to have her child, and she gave birth to a son, her first-born. She wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger because there was no room for them in the living-space.

In the countryside close by there were shepherds out in the fields keeping guard over their sheep during the watches of the night. An angel of the Lord stood over them and the glory of the Lord shone round them. They were terrified, but the angel said, ‘Do not be afraid. Look, I bring you news of great joy, a joy to be shared by the whole people. Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. And here is a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.’

And all at once with the angel there was a great throng of the hosts of heaven, praising God with the words: Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace for those he favours.
