Jan 9 The angel said, “Dont fear. I bring you great joy for all mankind. Today in Bethlehem,1 a Savior has been born for you; He is Christ the Lord. As a sign, you will find a baby wrapped in swaddles and lying in a manger.”

Suddenly a multitude of angels joined, praising God, “Glory to God in heaven and peace on earth to men who please Him.” After the angels returned to heaven, the shepherds said, “Lets go to Bethlehem and see this event revealed to us by the Lord.”

They hurried there and found Mary, Joseph and the baby in the manger. The shepherds related what had been said about the baby. All who heard it were amazed. Mary treasured and thought about these things. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had witnessed.
