Christmas #4 -- The Angels

Luke 2:13-14 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”
We see nativity scenes with two or three angels, but scripture says there was a multitude of heavenly host praising God. I can only imagine the sky as it burst at the seams full of angelic chorus praising God. It was surely a sight of what is to come in heaven.
This makes me wonder if others saw or heard what the shepherds were seeing and hearing. Or was it perhaps such a bright reflection of God’s glory that others only saw light without realizing what they were seeing. Could this be what caught the attention of the magi when they first noticed the star in the east?
May our lives reflect a similar light that gives praise and honor to God sharing peace and goodwill to all men.
