What Christmas means to the Jesuit Community

There’s a lot of imagery that surrounds Christmas. 

In Catholic tradition, the Christmas season celebrates the birth of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the Son of Mary. Angels announced this good news to shepherds in a field, who found him wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manager.

God is with us.
