The Lord Most High who holds all things within His power, emptied Himself and took on all the weaknesses of human flesh and was born into the humblest of circumstances. His holy birth was first announced to the lowliest people during this time - the shepherds. Shepherds were of the lowliest rank according to worldly thinking - but the ways of the Lord are not of this world. We are not to seek wordly acclaim, fame, power and riches, but rather build up treasure in Heaven.
Our Lady of Sorrows, ora pro nobis
