Nativity of the Lord (Christmas) at the Vigil Mass (Dec 24, 2023)


“She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” The Gospel of Matthew’s carefully crafted genealogy of the Messiah is upended by divine intervention. By the power of the Holy Spirit, the Son of God was born of the Virgin Mary.
