In the days when Caesar Augustus was emperor of Rome and when Herod the great was king of Judea, God sent the angel Gabriel to visit a virgin girl in the city of Nazareth. And the virgin's name was Mary. Fear not Mary, For you have found favor with God. You will conceive and give birth to a Son and you will call His name, Jesus. How can this be? I am a virgin. The Holy Spirit will come upon you. For this reason the Holy Child will be called the Son of the Most High God. His kingdom will never end. So Mary traveled to a town in Judea to visit her cousin Elizabeth who was also miraculously with child. Elizabeth! Mary! Cousin Mary! You are the most blessed of all women. And blessed is the Child you will bear. For as soon as I heard your greeting, the baby within me jumped with joy! My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior. From now on, all generations will call me blessed. Know all men of Nazareth, that by command of Caesar Augustus, there will be conducted a census of the subject territories of Galilee and Judea. All men must register forthwith in the towns and cities of their ancestral birth. And Mary went to Bethlehem in Judea to register with Joseph her betrothed. But there was no room for them in Bethlehem. And the only lodging they could find was a humble stable. Now there were some shepherds in that part of the country who were taking care of their flock at night when an angel of God appeared to them and the glory of God was shining around them. This very day in David's town, your Savior was born, Christ the Lord. The shepherds hurried to see the newborn Babe in the manger, and were the first to spread the Good News or Gospel of the virgin mother and the Savior's birth.
