Excerpt of These Twelve Days
The Feast of Saint John: “On the third day of Christmas, we celebrate the life and works of John the evangelist. The gospel story John wrote did not begin with the manger and the shepherds. John connected the story of Jesus' birth to the dawn of creation: 'In the beginning was the Word.' In the Gospel of John, the creative power of the Word continues to the resurrection and from the resurrection throughout all of history.”
