Christmas Eve



It is Christmas Eve.   We place ourselves in that anticipating moment: the birth of the Savior. The Messiah, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords is born.  God kept His promise!  


Take this time to meditate on the Incarnation.  God becomes Man.  God takes on Human form, Human Flesh!  This is awesome!   


God Our Creator becomes our Brother!   He is One of Us!   It can't get any better than that.  If that is not love or dedication, then I don't know what is. 




 For an all knowing, all powerful, eternal, magnificent Supreme Being - the Absolute Singularity to become a mere Human man to save all men women and children is both a brain cooker and a simple expression of Love.  






Christmas Eve is a time to reflect on this and remind ourselves how much God loves us.  Yes family time is nice, gifts are nice, Santa Claus stories such as the Night Before Christmas and Christmas music are nice, but Jesus is the Reason for the Season.  2000 years ago the world received the best present of all.  Let us continue receiving that present daily and open it daily within our hearts and minds.  










It is no wonder why St. Francis of Assisi loved the Incarnation so much that he was the first to start the Creche tradition.  To picture God as a small baby boy is just amazing.  To picture a mere woman named Mary holding God, her Creator!  It is just amazing to picture.  


Gather with your families, take your Bible and read the story of the Nativity.  Prepare your mind, hearts and souls for Jesus.  Then go to Midnight Mass and contemplate some more.  May Jesus Christ be born in our hearts daily!
