”The kindness of Jesus Christ heals the wickedness of a passionate soul”
#PatriarchDaniel explains Christmas symbols: “The gifts of the Magi show that the entire universe is a gift of God, and that we have to respond to God’s gift by offering gifts in our turn. Gold meant the royal quality of the Infant, being the Eternal King. Incense showed Him as High or Eternal Priest, serving God in Heaven and on Earth. Smyrna indicated that when Infant Jesus would grow up and become an adult, He would pass through death, but would conquer death through His Resurrection”.
