The Nativity of Our Lord. Why does the world celebrate the Birthday of Jesus with such great joy? Because Jesus comes to bring us this good news: I Love You. God loves us so much, He wants to be with us. This message is for the shepherds and the wise men, the simple and the clever, the poor and the rich, the Jews and the Gentiles. This message is repeated again on the Cross: I know what you have done, and I still love you enough to die for you. The miracle of Christmas is repeated at every Mass. God’s love becomes Bread and Wine so He can be with us. I love you, and I am all Yours. Will you be all mine?
