My reflection is from Living Faith:
Blessed be the Lord… for he has come to his people and set them free Luke 1:67
“Tomorrow is Christmas. We typically have many plans about what we want to do to prepare, both spiritually and for the holiday. Many times, our great plans are not fully realized. We may not feel ready.
No matter. Christmas is not about what we do. It is about what God has done. God knew that we could not save ourselves. So, God sent us Jesus.
What matters most this day is not what we do. Rather, we ought simply to go to the manger and give thanks for what God has done. Kneeling before the Christ child, in the blessed company of Mary and Joseph, we adore him.
Heavenly father, we give thanks for your coming to us in Jesus. We bless you; we adore you; we give you thanks.” Msgr. Stephen J. Rossetti
