“It is the mother of Jesus who brings us to know, love and adore the Son of God, made man. Allow her, therefore, to accompany us … with sincerity of heart and openness of spirit to recognize in the Child of Bethlehem the Son of God, Who came to earth for our redemption."
Pope Benedict XVI
"The mystery of Bethlehem is renewed upon the altar,
and the cry goes forth:
'Christ is born to us. Come, let us adore!' "
Fr Karl Adam
