Adoration of the shepherds to the Child Jesus

Adoration of the shepherds to the Child Jesus
Pili Piñero
January 1st: The Octave Day of Christmas, Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God
Gospel text
Lk 2:16-21
The shepherds went in haste to Bethlehem and found Mary and Joseph, and the infant lying in the manger.
Gospel's Commentary
Today we go along with the shepherds. An angel, at night, while they were working, gave them the great news: in Bethlehem the Savior is born! But, how can they find Him? The angel told them: “ this will be a sign for you: you will find an infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.” What a surprise! God, our Savior, staying in a barn. But they believed and went there... - The shepherds were not important people in their society. But Mary listens to them with tenderness... They went back very happy. Jesus, Mary and Joseph, always welcome us.
