Are you ready for Christmas?
Tuesday, December 24, 2013
Tomorrow is Christmas. Are you ready? Likely there were many things you wanted to do in preparation before Christmas, but the time passed too quickly.
No matter. This is God's work. The coming of Jesus is God's personal act of entering our lives. Through the prophets, God promised it, and now God does it.
Like the Magi and like the angels, our response is simply to kneel in praise and to adore. This is our response to the birth of Christ. This is what we truly prepare for.
In a few hours, Christmas will be here. We are reminded of the wondrous divine self-gift. Let us then kneel in praise and thanksgiving to adore.
