"The true spirit of Christmas is the unspeakable joy of spiritual sense being restored"

Christmas is a time for joy, because to Christians everywhere it commemorates the appearing in human experience of the man Jesus, whom the spiritually receptive of those times recognized as the Messiah of promise. He would bear witness to the Christ, the spiritual idea of sonship, and prove for all mankind the forever facts that Life is eternal and that man is the pure child of God.
