Ralph W. Sockman:
Christmas renews our youth by stirring our wonder. The capacity for wonder has been calledour most pregnant human faculty, for in it are born our art, our science, our religion.
'Tis blessed to bestow, and yet, Could we bestow the gifts we get, And keep the ones we giveaway, How happy were our Christmas day!
Pope Paul VI:
We consider Christmas as the encounter, the great encounter, the historical encounter, thedecisive encounter, between God and mankind. He who has faith knows this truly; let himrejoice.
Christmas... is not an eternal event at all, but a piece of one's home that one carries inone's heart
A lovely thing about Christmas is that it's compulsory, like a thunderstorm, and we all gothrough it together.
The Earth reminded us of a Christmas tree ornament hanging in the blackness of space. As wegot farther and farther away it diminished in size. Finally it shrank to the size of amarble, the most beautiful marble you can imagine.
Christmas is a season for kindling the fire for hospitality in the hall, the genial flame ofcharity in the heart.
