Guess whom the Church calendar honors on the day before Christmas

DIE 24 DECEMBRIS
Commemoratio omnium sanctorum avorum Iesu Christi, filii David, filii Abraham, filii Adam

THE TWENTY-FOURTH DAY OF DECEMBER
The commemoration of all the holy ancestors of Jesus Christ, son of David, son of Abraham, son of Adam


From the Vatican's 2001 edition of the Martyrologium Romanum

Next time, put the answer in white text, then we'll be able to highlight it to see it when we want to.

Uh...unless the "guess" thing was purely rhetorical.
