With infinite love for us all, He firmly declared, “I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” (John 8:12). How fitting, then, that a loving Heavenly Father provided a beacon of light in a darkened sky—the star of Bethlehem—to herald His Son’s sacred birth."
