Item description for We Have Seen a Great Light: 99 Sayings on Christmas (99 Words to Live by) by Alfred Hartl...

Christmas: What expectations and longings this feast evokes from every heart of good will. The light of the star of Bethlehem falls on all people - God became man for everyone. This is the abiding message of Christmas: God does not help us only from the distant heavens. The creator of space and time enters our own small "here" and "now." In Jesus, God becomes one of us, learns to speak and understand our language, to think our thoughts, to experience our joy and our pain. Throughout twenty centuries our most profound thinkers have pondered the meaning of that night in Bethlehem, that unique event in human history. This book contains some of those thoughts, glimmers from that Star that will always shine. With contributions by: Saint Augustine, Karl Barth, Benedict XVI, Joseph Cardinal Bernardin, Leonardo Boff, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Catherine of Siena, Hildegard of Bingen, John Paul II, Chiara Lubich, Martin Luther, Roger Schutz, Fulton J. Sheen, Edith Stein, and many others

Reviews - What do customers think about We Have Seen a Great Light: 99 Sayings on Christmas (99 Words to Live by)?

The Meaning of Christmas  Sep 22, 2007
In this new entry in the "99 Sayings" series Alfred Hartl has complied quotations from a wide range of sources including such modern spiritual leaders as Joseph Cardinal Bernardin, Karl Rahner, and Chiara Lubich. Although all the names might not be familiar, the theme is clear. As Hartl writes, humans have been trying to discover the meaning of Christmas for centuries and the quotes in this book are "like rays of that Star that never ceases to shine."

Many address the gift of Jesus that God bestowed on us: "With the coming of God's Word, motherly love has embraced us all" (Hildegard of Bingen). Others focus on the effect of this gift: "When one gives love to another, when the plight of the unfortunate is alleviated, when hearts are happy and content, then God descends from heaven and brings the light: then it is Christmas" (Haitian Christmas carol).

This pocket-sized hardcover, like the others in the 99 Sayings series, is an ideal gift for self and others, perfect for carrying along or keeping on a bedside table.
