Each year, I become more fascinated with Christmas. Christmas is, after all a season of light. The Light of the World was coming and the angel appears ready to proclaim it. In Luke’s gospel angels appear right in the beginning. To Zechariah, a temple priest, an angel appears in the Holy of Holies to tell him that he and his wife were going to have a son who will be the forerunner of the Savior. To Mary, a poor young maiden in the small village of Nazareth, an angel tells her that she will give birth to the Savior of the World! To shepherds,, an angel proclaims the virgin birth.
