President Russell M. Nelson, President Dallin H. Oaks, and President Henry B. Eyring the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released the following Christmas message on Friday, November 27. It was shared across several Church communication channels:
The true spirit of Christmas comes because of the Christ.
The true spirit of Christmas is in the angel’s announcement: “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:11).
The true spirit of Christmas is in the call of Jesus to “love one another, as I have loved you” (John 15:12).
And the true spirit of Christmas is in the Father’s introduction: “Behold my Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased, in whom I have glorified my name — hear ye him” (3 Nephi 11:7).
We invite all to seek and share the true spirit of Christmas this season by hearing Him — Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace and Light of the World.
