Merry Christmas

Nativity Scene (Anton Raphael Mengs 1728-79)

At every Mass, we end with the very poetic opening of John's Gospel ...

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Oh, happy day!

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,

Merry Christmas!

Beautiful use of *light* in this work of art. Poignant.

Yes, I love Rembrandt for this reason as well.
