One thing, we really miss is the love that the Son of God had for us and the suffering that He went through during the first Christmas. Jesus left the beautiful communion that He had with His Father in heaven to be born as a baby. If for no other reason, this cost Him great suffering and was the sign of great humility. But not only that, we forget how cold, filthy, and raw this stable was. There was no room for Him in the Inn.
During this season, Jesus comes to be born inside ‘the stable’ of broken hearts; to heal them, and show them His love. Many people are so preoccupied with the Christmas hustle and bustle that there is no room for Him in their heart. I ask each of you to re-evaluate what Christmas really means to you. It’s not gifts and food. It’s sharing love, not only with family but all the hurting people of the world. May each of each find a way to reach out and be a blessing to others. If, in no other way, be a blessing to ICM to give back to aid a student in hardship to be able to attend ICM. Holy Blessings to all this Holiday Season.
