THE CHRISTMAS STORY—ST. LUKE

[230] "AND there were in the same field shepherds abiding, keeping watch over their flocks by night; and the Angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them, and they were sore afraid. But the Angel said unto them: 'Fear not, for, behold! I bring you glad tidings of great joy which shall be to you and all men. For unto you is born this day, in the city of David, a Saviour which is Christ the Lord; and this shall be a sign unto you, you shall find the Babe wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.' And suddenly there was with the Angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: 'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good-will toward men.'

"And it came to pass, as the Angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another: 'Let us now go even to Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.' And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger."
