Christmas Day: Mass During the Day (English)

Day2.jpg

In the last of the three Masses for Christmas Day, the Church calls us to meditate especially on the eternal birth of the Son from the Father. This Mass even more than the others for Christmas Day is a meditation upon the meeting point of the central mysteries of our faith: the Trinity and the Incarnation.
