Nativity of Our Lord

The Gospels speak of various people, besides Mary and Joseph, who were given faith to recognize and believe in Jesus during the time of His Nativity. They were the poor shepherds, the three Magi, and Simeon and Anna. Since the most immediate reason the Son of God came into the world was to bring forgiveness for sins, we can imagine how these new faithful sensed Jesus’ role as Savior from their sins.
