Dear brothers and sisters in Christ!
Once again Christmas is here. During the Advent Season we were called by the Church to prepare a way for the Lord, to make His paths straight, to prepare ourselves to celebrate the Solemnity of the Nativity of Jesus Christ. And now it is already here. Have we heeded the call of the Church? Have we properly prepared ourselves to worthily commemorate this special day?
Each year as we celebrate Christmas, we cannot help but contemplate how Almighty God chose the wonderful event of His incarnation to happen. God chose the Blessed Virgin Mary to be the mother of Jesus. We know that Mary accepted the role for which Almighty God had chosen her and our Lord was conceived of the Holy Spirit. Do you remember how excited you were about Christmas when you were young? As adults we need to have that same spirit of excitement and anticipation that children always seen to have.
Dear brothers and sisters, at Christmas let us make time for Jesus. As you break the Christmas wafers – opłatek during the vigil supper and on Christmas Day, remember that we celebrate the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ and that we are to share the Good News and His love with each another. May the Child of Bethlehem be the center of all of our celebrations and festivities this year. May Jesus Christ bring you hope, love, joy, and peace. Have a blessed Christmas and may the New Year 2012 be a happy and healthy one for you and your families.
