" . . . And his name shall be called . . . The Prince of Peace." - Isa. 9:6

"At Christmas time, I take delight in visiting the widows and widowers from the ward where I served as bishop," President Thomas S. Monson, then of the Council of the Twelve, said at the April 1981 general conference. " . . . Visits like these provide for me the Christmas spirit, which is, in reality, the Spirit of Christ." . . . We remember that during the meridian of time a bright, particular star shone in the heavens. Wise men followed it and found the Christ child. Today, wise men still look heavenward and again see a bright, particular star. It will guide you and me to our opportunities. The burden of the downtrodden will be lifted, the cry of the hungry stilled, the lonely heart comforted. And souls will be saved - yours, theirs and mine."
