“This day is born to you a Savior” (Lk 2:11)…
“God Himself will come and will save you” (Isaias 35:4)
Dear readers, the beautiful feast of the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ is once again upon us, and it is entirely due to the grace and goodness of Almighty God that we are permitted to celebrate it.
Approximately 700 years before the Birth of Jesus Christ, the prophet Isaias foretold that God Himself would come and save His people:
Say to the fainthearted: Take courage, and fear not: behold your God will bring the revenge of recompense: God himself will come and will save you. Then shall the eyes of the blind be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
(Isaias 35:4-5; cf. Gen 22:8)
In order to help you celebrate this Christmas worthily, we would like to share with you a most beautiful movie rendition of the Birth of our Lord, one that is very dignified, modest, and edifying. It is called The Savior and is part of the Life of Christ trilogy, produced in Spain in 1957. You can watch it for free here:
The Savior was followed by The Redeemer and The Master. The entire trilogy runs approximately 4 hours and 30 minutes, and it is available as a single movie here. For anyone interested in purchasing it on DVD, the discs are sold separately here (but watch out, this is a Novus Ordo store).
As you (hopefully) spend time with loved ones this Christmas, or even if you have to spend it alone with your Guardian Angel, this Life of Christ will be a source of great joy, consolation, and inspiration to you.
While the Modernist Sect in Rome celebrates Hanukkah with the faithless Jews, thus denying the Lord who bought them (cf. 2 Pet 2:1), we Catholics rejoice in and celebrate the Birth of the Divine Infant, who came to “save his people from their sins” (Mt 1:21).
