The world thinks that Christmas is over, but the Church continues celebrating it for the next two weeks. The liturgy and its readings and prayers focus on the many different aspects of the incarnation, and the many ways that it shapes our lives.
The birth of a child brings great hope about what that child might do in life.
The birth of Christ brings great hope because of what he already did. Our joy in his birth is reflected in the birth of every baby. As we continue to celebrate Christmas, let’s pray that all who welcome Christ’s birth may welcome the birth of every child, no matter how inconvenient or unexpected that new life may be.
