In this book you will find three homilies of His Holiness Pope Shenouda III, 117th Pope of Alexandria and Patriarch of the See of Saint Mark, on the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In the homily He Emptied Himself, His Holiness expounds the astounding Self-emptying of Christ our Lord, not only in the event of His humble birth, but throughout His life, answering the questions: Why did our Lord empty Himself, and how can we apply self-emptying in our lives?
The Fullness of Time details the profound spiritual lesson of waiting for God’s chosen time to do His work. And finally, in the third homily, God With Us, we learn of the wonder of God’s desire to dwell with man, and for man to be His dwelling place.
