OF THE SHEPHERDS
St. Luke writes in the second Chapter [8-21].
First Point. First: The birth of Christ our Lord is manifested to the Shepherds by the Angel. “`I manifest to you great Joy, for this day is born the Saviour of the world.”`
Second Point. Second: The Shepherds go to Bethlehem. “They came with haste and they found Mary and Joseph, and the infant put in the manger.”
Third Point. Third: “The Shepherds returned glorifying and praising the Lord.”
