From the author of A Daily Catholic Moment and My Year with the Saints for Kids comes a book about the most popular Christmas song in the world, the Nativity of Jesus Christ, and how to carry the beauty and wonder of the Bethlehem stable into our lives as a new year begins. Celano reflects on "Silent Night, Holy Night"--how it came to be, its continued importance, and its message of contemplation, hope, and love. The year 2019 marks the 200th anniversary of the first major performances of the carol.
