I hope you are having a Merry Christmas! Today, I want to remember what this day is about and take a moment to read the stories given to us about the birth of Jesus. So, I will read the stories of the Nativity in the gospels of Matthew and Luke. It’s important to go back to these stories, which is why today’s episode will do just that. Instead of telling people to “keep the Christ in Christmas,” I want to do that. If you agree, join me in reading these stories, and take time to reflect on what they teach.

“My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden.
For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed; for he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name.”-Mary, the Mother of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke
Keep the Christ and the Mass in Christmas
Obviously, the birth of Jesus is the major celebration today. But, how should we celebrate Him? Well, as a Catholic I have an easy answer – the Mass. More than any other form of worship, the Holy Mass fulfills what we owe to God on this day. So, I say keep the Christ in Christmas, as well as the Mass in Christmas.
Have a Merry Christmas
2020 has been a hard year, and I won’t try to deny that or dwell on it. However, as we see in the Christmas story, there is cause for joy. Furthermore, we are called to be joyful – even when it isn’t easy to do so. Let us celebrate today with those that we love, and remember that this is the celebration of the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
