A COLLECTIONS OF QUOTES CONCERNING THE BIRTH OF CHRIST

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch of their flocks at night. Anangel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. - Luke 2:8-11

It was great condescension that He who was God should be made in the likeness of flesh; but much greater that He who was holy should be made in the likeness of sinful flesh. MATHEW HENRY

We should rejoice, that the immortal God is born, so that mortal man may live in eternity.
There is no name so sweet on earth, no name so sweet in heaven, The name, before His wondrous birth, to Christ the Savior given. - George W. Bethune



Invisible in His own nature [God] became visible in ours. Beyond our grasp, He chose to come within our grasp. -- Leo the Great

That the Creator himself comes to us and becomes our ransom - this is the reason for our rejoicing.-- Martin Luther

What he was, he laid aside; what he was not, he assumed. He takes upon himself the poverty of my flesh so that I may receive the riches of his divinity. Gregory Nazianzen

There is no name so sweet on earth, no name so sweet in heaven, The name, before His wondrous birth, to Christ the Savior given. - George W. Bethune

Cristina, since my ancient computer has a hard time sending emails I will respond here: I got your email asking me to pray. I shall continue to pray for you to have the Lord's wisdom, guidance and direction in speaking to him about his soul.

May the Lord bless you, my sister.
Mark
