Solemnity of the Nativity of Our Lord

CHRISTMAS IS FOR EVERYONE!

Liturgical Colour: 

When doing some Christmas shopping I overheard a conversation between two ladies which made me stop to think. One lady said, 'I'm fed up with Christmas!' Her friend replied, 'Well, it's only for children, isn't it?'

I started to wonder what they meant. Perhaps they were both exhausted with all the shopping, baking, present-wrapping and general preparations which Christmas involves. Who could blame them? Or was it because they had somehow lost sight of what Christmas is really about that they were talking in this way?

WHO DESERVES OUR CHRISTMAS THANK-YOUS MOST?

Liturgical Colour: 

The love, the generosity and the compassion of our Heavenly Father is just amazing. He can see the future. The whole of human history is mapped in front of Him. As Scripture says, "One day is like a thousand years and a thousand years like one day."

CHRISTMAS DAY

This Christmas we need to focus on the greatest reality there is - that God loves us so much that He gave us His only Son to free us from our sins! We need to be grateful for His love and respond to His love; and the best way to do that is by surrendering our life completely to Him, as He surrendered Himself completely to us. How do we do this?
