Gospel Acclamation: 'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among people of good will.'
From the Gospel 25 December - Mass during the night
But the angel said, 'Do not be afraid. Look, I bring you good news of great joy for the whole people, that today a Saviour has been born to you in the town of David, who is Christ the Lord. And this is a sign for you; you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.' And suddenly there was with the angel a throng of the heavenly host, praising God and saying: "Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace among people of good will." Luke 2:10-14
