Christmas tells us where to find Jesus: a stable, the Eucharist, with jail inmates, and with cancer patients. Christmas is learning to recognize Jesus in the humble places of this world. Where did you see Jesus today? [AUDIO]
The year 2015 was pretty dark. There’s plenty of darkness in the Christmas story too. Jesus is not afraid of the dark. He loves you and wants a relationship with you. He wants you to love him in return. Train yourself to look for the Light. [AUDIO]
The Son of God looks like… us! He reveals Who God is and Who we are. The family is a portal into Heaven. So is Mass, where we the Son of God in our hands. We can experience the Peace and Joy of our sonship whenever we give glory to God in the highest.
Why is this birthday so important? The Shepherd became a sheep to save us from the wolf and bring us peace and joy. At every Mass we experience the miracle of Christmas: a God so small and innocent, you can hold Him in your hands. (25 Dec 2014)
Jesus has come for all people. He is the true Priest, the true Prophet, and the true King. But the gift of Jesus is so much more than just a child in a manger. God has promised to accompany us all our life — much like an engagement ring. Jesus fully plans to teach us, lead us, and die for us. That is why at today’s Mass we announce the upcoming feasts from the next year: There is so much more to come.
We celebrate the Birthday of Jesus because He comes to tell us: I Love You. Poor and rich, simple and clever, Jew and Gentile – I love you. On the Cross I love you. At the Mass I love you. He wants to hear us say: I love You too.
Christmas, Mass at Midnight – We need a hero. Jesus has only one superpower: unconditional love. He is the antidote — not of violence, guns, or aliens — but fear and hate and selfishness. He shares His love with us and we become invincible. (25 Dec 2012)
