“In many and various ways God spoke of old to our fathers by the prophets; but in these last days he has spoken to us by a Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He reflects the glory of God and bears the very stamp of his nature, upholding the universe by his word of power.” (Hebrews 1:1-3).

Down through the ages, from generation to generation, the words of God, Our Father, have come to His children. Mankind turned from God’s love but, God and His love never turned from us. He fathered us through the ages, sending His envoys to us to prepare for His own coming in time and thus for our Redemption.

All the words of God given to us are completed and perfected in His Son, the Word Who speaks to each of us, through His Church and to our hearts.

This is such a wonderful truth—God loves us so much, that although we are sinful, He became one of us so as to make us like Himself so that we may forever rejoice in His Beatitude.

Listen to the Newborn Child of Bethlehem—the Word of God, Who speaks His love to us.
