Every December 25th Christians begin to celebrate the twelve days of Christmastide. But with so many ornaments, Santa Claus’, and presents, it can be easy to forget about Christmas’ true meaning. Christmas was never meant to cause such anxiety and greed. In reality, Christmas is about the gift God gave to the world, to each of us. Jesus Christ was born over 2,000 years ago in fulfillment of God’s promise to bless all nations through the seed of Abraham. The invitation of Christmas is to receive that blessing as we worship the child who grew up to die for the sin of the world. Traditionally, the Church has celebrated three ways Christ has been born. First, eternally in the Word or Logos of the Father. Second, naturally from the Virgin Mary’s womb. Third, mystically in the souls of all who put their faith in him. As we celebrate the birth of our savior each year, may we all experience great joy and renewal as Christ is born anew in each one of us!
