When I was in Rome recently, we visited a lot of churches and cathedrals.  In one of the churches, a unique version of the nativity scene was on display behind a glass front.  In this display, you had to search for the manger scene.  Most of the display showed people pursuing their everyday activities, some…

Christmas doesn’t end at midnight. Christmas doesn’t end with the feast of the Three Kings, or Lent, or Easter. Christmas is the continuing gift of God’s presence with us, and Christmas is our challenge to prepare room in our hearts for God. May the peace and joy of Christmas fill our hearts to overflowing and to last forever. Angels announced Jesus’ birth to shepherds and spoke about peace on earth to people of goodwill. May God’s peace finally be ours.

Sooner or later, our ideas of a Messiah will clash with what Jesus is really doing. Jesus, the real Jesus, the real Messiah, the Lord, the Good Shepherd, our Savior and our true Friend, this Jesus will upset our expectations. This Jesus will ask us, He always does, if we really want to follow Him, or if we want to cling to our idea of who the Messiah should be. And Jesus wants to know if we are ready to follow Him wherever He wants to take us, or do we want to be comfortable and worship a God of our own choosing?”

We really need to listen to John the Baptist. He offers us hope and assures us once again that the reign of God is here. He has some great advice for us: “Reform your lives!” he tells us. If we work hard on this, we can and will become better people and that will bring about a better world.

In his letter to the Romans, St. Paul is very helpful. He gives us some attainable goals. He tells us to live honorably and to let Jesus help us in our efforts to love one another. The Bible is filled with promises made by God and He has kept every one of them. St. Paul urges us to let the past be past; and to let go of past wounds, past anxieties, past hurts, past fears and doubts, so that we can live freely in the present time and hope for a better and safer future because God kept His promises in the past and we can trust God to keep the promises He makes today.
