Adoration of the Shepherds, Bronzino

In the tradition of St. Luke, humble, hard-working people were privileged to be the first visitors to the Christ Child. They could not keep the good news to themselves, but told all who would listen …

“So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.” Luke 2:16-20

May Christ come into our hearts tonight and always. And may we be the humble but eager bearers of this good news to all who will listen.
