“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will towards men.” Luke 2:14.

nativity-scene1

With these words a multitude of angels praised the Almighty at the time of the miraculous birth of His Eternal Son. The heavenly host called upon men to ascribe glory to God and to lift up their hearts in praise to Him. They proclaimed God’s message of peace and reconciliation and made known His good will towards sinful men. The words should be understood in this sense, “Let there be glory to God. Let there be peace on earth, for in the birth of His Son God is showing His good will towards His people.”
