A few years ago, I made this post on my personal facebook page. Somehow, (divine fate?) I found it again and want to share it with you.
"Last night as I made my way to midnight Mass I was struck by the calm and stillness of this most silent night. Profound awe overcame me as I pondered that some 2000 years ago God came out of eternity and entered the realm of human time and existence to take on mortal flesh. At Mass there was the beauty of the church decorations the melodious sounds of choir and musicians the lectors, servers and all ministers who helped to make the Mass the celebration of our Lord’s birth. But , it is our coming home this night that makes our celebration complete. As people of faith, we welcome home those who come each week, those who are home for the holidays and those who, for whatever reasons, may not have been with us in some time. With the warm and smiling faces, those new and those familiar we come together and share in the most important meal of the holiday. And as I made my way home from the night that started as one of calm and stillness, I realized we should be anything but silent. Like George Bailey in the classic “It’s a Wonderful Life”, we are called to shout the Good News to the world. Shout it over the hills and everywhere! Our Savior has been born! Merry Christmas you wonderful old building and loan….Merry Christmas cashier at the gas station ….Merry Christmas person who just cut me off in traffic…… Merry Christmas (to all my) family and friends…. Merry Christmas and Peace on Earth one and all."
And naturally, I have a few new images to share with you as well! Merry Christmas!
