Read Luke 2: 8-20 – The Angels and the Shepherds and focus especially on the news given to the shepherds and how they reacted.

Write down notes about

- where the shepherds were when the angel came

- what happened with the angel (events and what was said)

- how you think the shepherds felt

- what the shepherds did after the angels left

- who and what they saw in Bethlehem

- how the shepherds must have felt when they had seen this

Now, use your notes to write a letter as if you are a shepherd writing to a friend about the events of Christmas night.  Make sure to include your feelings and end with a thought about the importance of the night.

Read the liturgy of the Eucharist - https://catholic-resources.org/ChurchDocs/Mass.htm#Eucharist

- Christ is present in the bread and the wine.
