Welcome

Welcome to Angels of the Nativity Virtual Hermitage

Donald Knight, MDiv.

As the Angel proclaimed to the shepherds that fateful starry night, the good news of Christ’s birth is indeed “news of a great joy that is for ALL the people” (Luke 2:8-11).

I began this blog four years ago as a means to offer a virtual hermitage, an online retreat from society and social media and a deeper dive into experiencing God’s Word and presence in our lives through the liturgy of the Church and celebrating the memories of all the saints, seekers, stargazers, pilgims — holy men and women — who courageously sought that Light that darkness could not overcome and in so doing helped further reflect that Light into the world.

It is my hope that through further reflection on the liturgy we celebrate in our faith communities every Sunday and through reflecting on the holy lives of noted saints, seekers, stargazers and pilgrims, our prayer lives are enriched and our souls are inflamed with the love of God.  By so doing, we in turn become heralds of that good news that is for ALL the people.
