Christmas Novena, Day 8

"The stable in the Christmas message represents the ill-treated world. Christ came to restore beauty and dignity to creation: this is what began and Christmas and makes the Angels rejoice. The earth is restored to good order by virtue of the fact that it is opened up to God, it obtains its true light anew, and it regains its beauty and dignity. Thus, Christmas is a feast of restored creation."
Pope Benedict XVI
