Okay, so Jesus wasn’t laid in a cradle but rather a manger — you get the point. God’s Son was born of a virgin in order that He might one day, some thirty years later, die on the Roman cross for the whole world, granting eternal life to those who don’t reject this free gift. Merry Christmas to all and to all a spectacularly good night!
