Enough I have said on the faithful use and fruitfulness of the Christmas story. But the sum of it is here: "Unto you is born this day a Savior!" Thus, Mary is the emblem of our Christianity. The swaddling cloths are the Holy Gospel. The manger is the holy Sanctuary. You and I? We are the ox and the ass.
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther (paraphrased), from his Christmas Book in "On the Shepherds"
Merry Christmas, and a happy 2025!
