Merry Christmas from your sisters in Christ! What is the manger? The Crib is a way, a truth, a life... it is here that we are to learn to live our lives: how we have to live and what road we are to take. The Son of God, coming to accomplish the greatest work that could possibly be done on this earth, in a move to conquer the world, gave himself up to save his people (1 Mac. 6:44), establishing on earth a kingdom that will not end except at the close of time... To do this He began from the Manger. That is, he left the splendour of heaven, where he was continually adored by the Angels, loved by the Father and the Holy Spirit, and came on earth: And the Word became Flesh (Jn 1:14) -Bl. James Alberione May our Newborn Saviour draw you and your families close to His Heart: the Heart of God who loves us and gives Himself for us and to us in a form so small, we can hold Him in our arms.
With the rising of the sun, you will soon see the King of kings and Lord of lords coming forth from His Father, as the bridegroom from His bridal chamber. -Christmas Novena, Day 9 Our Lord and King is drawing near; O come, let us adore Him! We'll be closing our doors early today to prepare for the coming of Christ our Saviour. May God bless you and your loved ones on this Christmas Eve!
How is it that God loves us as we are? Because his love is not like ours, poor and indigent, seeking in the beloved what is lacking in us. No, God's love is a love of infinite fullness and looks for nothing except a voice to fill, for poor beings to make happy, for miseries to cure, because he is infinite Goodness and infinite Mercy. Like the ocean that seeks a bed in which to pour its fullness, the infinite God seeks the immensity of our misery in order to fill it.... It was precisely our love, the love of his poor creatures, that God came on earth to seek in the midst of the sorrows and sufferings of his mortal life. It is what he asks of us, what he demands of us. He came filled with gifts for the poor ones of earth whose hearts were miserable and broken, but capable of loving. He came to ask [us] to love him. He came to oblige [us] to love him by the extreme tenderness and ardour of his love. -From The Sanctifier by Archbishop Luis M.

If you are feeling depressed, lonely, anxious, worried, or otherwise down this Christmas, remember ... ... Christmas is for YOU. Jesus was not born for people who are content and fulfilled. He was born for the sick, the hungry, the downtrodden, the outcasts, the prisoners and the dying. He chose to make your poverty His home. He embraced your weakness to show you that you don't need to run from it. Weakness does not separate you from God; it keeps you close to Him, like a child to His Father. Jesus's birth did not immunize us from suffering; this is not Christmas joy. The real joy of Christmas is that Jesus is with us, and our suffering can't keep Him away. Jesus obeyed and trusted His Father through thick and thin, from a borrowed manger to a Cross. This is the path He offers us today and every day: a path of obedient Faith that leads to Resurrection, peace, and everlasting life. Christmas is the day He began to pave this path for us. It is the day Jesus comes to you, wherever you are, and invites you into His own relationship with the Father that no evil, sin, or darkness can touch. So if you feel like Christmas just isn't for you this year, think again ... and dare to rejoice. Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let all men know your forbearance. The Lord is at hand. Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Phil 4:4-7)
