“God Himself will come and will save you” (Is 35:4)
“This day is born to you a Saviour” (Luke 2:11)
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. The year 2020 has not been an easy one, and it behooves us to thank God all the more that we are once again permitted to adore the Divine Child in the crib.
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.
