Lessons from the manger

Nativity scene in Bethlehem showing he Holy Family

Our lord, Jesus Christ, was born in a manger in Bethlehem.

The birth of Christ in the stable of Bethlehem has much to teach us. In this meditation we use texts of Scripture to consider seven lessons which the infant Jesus teaches us from the manger:

  1. Love
  2. Spiritual childhood
  3. Contemplation
  4. Humility
  5. Detachment from comforts
  6. Zeal for souls
  7. Peace and joy
