In the night of the world, we must let ourselves be amazed and illumined by this act of God, which is totally unexpected: God becomes a Child. We must let ourselves be amazed, illumined by the Star that inundated the universe with joy.
- Pope Benedict XVI's General Audience, December 22nd 2010
From all of us at Salt + Light Television, may the Christ Child be born anew in your hearts this Christmas season.
Have a holy Christmas, filled with the wonder and awe that our Holy Father speaks of.
May the greatest gift you receive be a deeper understanding of God's love for you, and may all of us be moved to love each other with that same love.
