Can an xml file/data be loaded into a SQL Server database? If Yes how is that done?

We have a large xml file that needs to be loaded into a SQL Server database/table. Is this possible and if Yes, how is it done? We have a production version which is SQL Server 2005 and a development version which is SQL Server 2012 R2.

Yes.  SSIS can handle it using an XML task, loading an XML file into a table for each entity in the file.

Can you give me an example of how that is done?  What should I look for (files/procedures) that would accomplish this. I am in a situation where the previous person that took care of this is out on mediacl leave and left no documentation or information behind.
