Christmas 2022: God is here!

Merry Christmas!

“‘This day shall light shine upon us; for the Lord is born to us.’ (Is 9:2) This is the great announcement which moves Christians today. Through them it is addressed to all mankind. God is here. This truth should fill our lives, and every Christmas should be for us a new a special meeting with God, when we allow his light and grace to enter deep into our soul.” (St. Josemaria Escriva; Christ is Passing By, no. 12)

The St. Josemaria Institute joins you in celebrating Christmas near the crib of the Child Jesus! To accompany your prayer, we’ve gathered some recommended resources for you to enjoy listening or reading this season. Let’s assure the story and truth of God’s Incarnation enter deep into our souls and fill us with His light and grace.
