The STAR. Most Christmas trees will be adorned with a star somewhere in the tree, if certainly not on top of the magnificent evergreen. The star symbol is associated with the advent of Christ. It appears in scenes of the Nativity and the Epiphany. In Apocalypse one can read the following, “ And a great sign appeared in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon was under her feet , and upon her head a crown of twelve stars” This passage, written by Saint John, outlines his vision of the woman clothed in glory who will bear a Child who is to become the Saviour of nations – hence, a perfect symbol of the Church of God.
