Rejoice! Our God Comes To Save Us

Archbishop Paul D. Etienne's 2019 Christmas Homily

St. James Cathedral, Seattle

On this Holy Night, we experience once again what the Prophets foretold of old. The One who is to comfort God’s people is born. (Isaiah 40) The desire of all nations, (Haggai 2:6-7) of every human heart is found wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

The human face of God

“The angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find an infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.’” (Luke 2:10-12)

El rostro humano de Dios

"El ángel les dijo: No teman. Miren que vengo a anunciarles una gran alegría, que lo será para todo el pueblo: hoy les ha nacido, en la ciudad de David, el Salvador, que es el Cristo, el Señor; y esto les servirá de señal: encontrarán a un niño envuelto en pañales y reclinado en un pesebre”. (Lucas 2,10-12)
