Everything under the sun has been said about Christmas. But I’ll add this…
What I hear tonight at the midnight hour is the call to be like the blessed mother. Will we awake tomorrow, answering the call to be like Mary, having given birth to the Savior-child in our hearts?
Take care of the Christ-child, people called by God. Treasure these things in your heart as Mary did and allow them to lead you to holiness.
“This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing;
Haste, haste, to bring Him laud,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.”
