Christmas is the time when we especially remember Christ coming to us as God Almighty (God is with us: Matthew 1:23)
and at the same time taking on humanity (The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.
We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14).
