Natale Pasko

I always found it strange that the Filipino word for Christmas is 'pasko', and then this morning Eusebio told me that in Spanish, Christmas is 'pascua de navidad', which would be pasqua di natale in Italian. Which contains the insight that the Birth is closely linked to the Death - and to the Resurrection. Rossi de Gasperis writes: "Anche quando mettono il Bambino nel presepio, la fede e la liturgia cristiana si snodano sempre dinanzi al Cristo risorto." (Sentieri di vita 2.2, 24). Even when we put the Child into the crib, the Christian faith and the liturgy always unfold before the risen Christ.
