Christmas: The Coming to Know a Person

All knowledge is ordered to the knowledge of God.

Truth matters.

And as our Holy Father Francis reminds us, knowledge of the truth means, above all, to know a Person.

"Christian faith is faith in the incarnation of the Word and his bodily resurrection; it is faith in a God who is so colse to us that he entered our humnan history.  Far from divorcing us from reality, our faith in the Son of God made man in Jesus of Nazareth enables us to grasp reality's deepest meaning and to see how much God loves this world and is constantly guiding it towards himself."

-Lumen Fidei
