Solemnity of the Nativity of the Lord
"While they were there [in Bethlehem], the time came for her to have her child, and she gave birth to her firstborn son. She wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn" (Luke 2:6-7).
This is how Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Second Person of the Most Holy Trinity, who became human for us and for our salvation, was born.
