Regina Coeli Report - Jan-Feb 2022: The Invisible Made Visible
"As the main article in this issue reinforces, the miraculous Nativity of Our Lord is not an isolated event to be celebrated and forgotten, but a beautiful testament of God’s love for the world which should never be far from our reflections. 'Behold a virgin shall be with child, and bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us' (Mt. 1:23)."
Here at the start of 2022, with a global pandemic still causing massive disruptions in the lives of so many across the world, it is more important than ever to continue looking to Our Lord Jesus Christ for mercy and guidance. The Christmas season which has recently drawn to a close has been particularly difficult for many who have found themselves separated from family, friends, and in some instances their own churches.
As a small consolation for those who may have been deprived of a “normal” Nativity for the past two years, this issue of the Regina Coeli Report offers a small display of crèches or Nativity scenes from chapels of the U.S. District of the Society of Saint Pius X. May they serve as a reminder of the beautiful gift God gave to the world by becoming Incarnate, and being born into the world as a little child, the world He created, in a cave over 2,000 years ago. And may they also help all in renewing their faith in Our Lord, to see us out of this present crisis, while preparing souls for the penitential season of Lent.
Even in the darkest times, whether real or imagined, despair is never the answer. Christ’s message of hope and redemption is as true today as it was millennia ago. Although we may be tempted to believe we are living in the darkest of times, the light of Christ never ceases to penetrate that darkness and show the way forward to the Kingdom of Heaven.
