Christmas

Fr. Mike particularly likes the Christmas lyric, "and Mary's boy child, Jesus Christ, was born on Christmas day."  This lyric always causes him to marvel.  If Jesus had been born one day sooner or one day later, he'd have missed it.  Now, we have recently celebrated First Reconciliation with the second graders.  I always tell them that Jesus knows what they have to go through and how hard it is to be a kid sometimes because he was a little boy and had to grow up and learn all the things that the second graders have to learn.  Thinking of this makes me wonder if Jesus was the first little boy in history to sing the song, "and they only give me half of what they oughta, 'cause my birthday comes on Christmas!"

Be that as it may..., as Augusta Rundell said:

"Christmas--that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia. Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance--a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved."

More than this, we remember everyone who has ever loved us and we remember that God has loved us enough to want to come and live with us and lead us home to live with him forever.  We remember hope.
