    The day of joy drew near, the time of exultation approached. … Simplicity is honored there, poverty is exalted, humility is commended ... and the whole night echoes with jubilation.” 

    My dear Sisters and Brothers!
    The day of joy drew near. There are only a few days left to Christmas, a feast so dear for Saint Francis as well, when the celebrated is the same one who offers us the gift, and gives the greatest gift forever. It is the time of exultation for us.
