For Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, Christmas was the most beautiful feast of the entire liturgical year. Through his writings we discover the reason for his love, which led him to live Christmas all taken up into an ecstasy of love. Beginning with the novena of Advent, which kindled his spirit, until the procession with the baby Jesus during the Holy Night.
