First Presidency Christmas message

The Prince of Peace

We rejoice with you in this glorious season commemorating the birth of our Savior, the Prince of Peace. As His servants, we testify that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Almighty. He left His Father's royal courts on high and condescended to come to earth as a babe born in the most humble of circumstances. Angels announced His birth, bringing "good tidings of great joy" (Luke 2:10). After His incomparable mortal ministry and Atonement, angels again declared good tidings: "He is not here, but is risen"(Luke 24:6).

We testify that as we follow His divine example and teachings, our lives will be blessed and we will find that peace that "passeth all understanding" (Philippians 4:7).

May you and your loved ones experience the true joy of this special season.
