I don’t think any us, including myself, has the slightest idea of how truly blessed we are on Christmas. God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son. The Son loved us so much that He was willing to suffer, die, and rise from the dead for you and me. About all we can say is that it is God’s beautiful Christmas gift to us. What we do with it in the days ahead will be our gift back to God. Let’s make our gift something beautiful to God. Let’s make it the gift of ourselves to God, just as God made Himself a gift to us 2000 years ago. And, as He does every time we receive Him in the Eucharist.
Have a Blessed and Merry Christmas! Peace.
