We don't know zxacrly the date of our Saviour's
birth. First, in Eastern Christianity, it was
commemorated on january 6 but some people thought
the Annociation was on the same day as the
Passion, i.e. on mars 25. Then His birthday would
be december 25.
Ar Rome, in the year 354, the pope fixed our
Saviour's birthday on december 25 and, a little
later, the Epiphany on january 6.
In my parish, the Nativity is celebrated on
january 6. But the most important is to celebrate
our Saviour's birthday !
May the Christ, our God, keep all of us in His
holy guard !
