Christmas Eve

Reflection

Click on arrow and listen to the audio reflection:

O the depth of the riches of God;
and the breadth of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
For who has known the mind of God?
To God be glory forever.

A virgin will carry a child and give birth,
and his name shall be called Emmanuel.
For who has known the mind of God?
To God be glory forever.

The people in darkness have seen a great light;
for a child has been born; his dominion is wide.
For who has known the mind of God?
To God be glory forever.

John Foley,SJ Who Has Known

Christmas, my child, is love in action.

Christ was born in the first century, yet he belongs to all centuries. He was born a Jew, yet He belongs to all races. He was born in Bethlehem, yet He belongs to all countries.

I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.
