We Have Seen a Great Light

99 Sayings on Christmas


This selection of writings on the theme of Christmas can be used for personal reflection, or as a useful resource for carol services and Christmas concerts. The contributors include: Karl Rahner, Leonardo Boff, Hildegard of Bingen, Helder Camara and many others.


Christmas: What expectations and longings this feast evokes from every heart of good will. The light of the star of Bethlehem falls on all people – God became man for everyone. This is the abiding message of Christmas: God does not help us only from the distant heavens. The creator of space and time enters our own small “here” and “now.” In Jesus, God becomes one of us, learns to speak and understand our language, to think our thoughts, to experience our joy and our pain. Throughout twenty centuries our most profound thinkers have pondered the meaning of that night in Bethlehem, that unique event in human history. This book contains some of those thoughts, glimmers from that Star that will always shine.
