In the name of the Father, and of the + Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
Last night we heard of the angels singing,
and the shepherds rushing off to the manger
to see the newborn king.
But in the light of this morning,
the angels are present only in the letter to the Hebrews.
And the author of the letter to the Hebrews
seems only to want to put them in their place.
We read that this babe in the manger
is far superior to angels.
We hear that God does not say to the angels,
‘You are My Son; today I have begotten you!’
