- “Don’t be afraid! Look! I bring good news to you—wonderful, joyous news for all people. Your savior is born today in David’s city. He is Christ the Lord. This is a sign for you: you will find a newborn baby wrapped snugly and lying in a manger.”
- “Glory to God in heaven, and on earth peace among those whom he favors.”
What the angels DIDN'T say:
- "And your savior will start a new world religion, that will in time take over the earth. One religion to RULE THEM ALL!"
- "And he will raise up the Church as the seat of his power over the Earth and over other religions!"
Wouldn't that have put a damper on celebration a bit?
