In the midst of the hustle and bustle of the season, I invite you to stop. Breathe.
Take a few minutes to ponder the profound mystery of the incarnation. God, taking human form. Setting aside his glory and power to become one with the created. Jesus, the second Adam, who bought the salvation of mankind with his blood and began the process of redeeming not only humans but also the whole earth. Ponder what it means to you. Ponder that because he lives, we can indeed face tomorrow.
I wish you and yours a very blessed and holy Christmas. Don’t let the hundreds of details and urgent demands distract you from the beauty of this mystery. Christmas is here. Don’t miss it.
