“Whoever has seen me has seen the Father.” (John 14:9)
Reflection: Christmas is God in human language. It is not simply about the birth of a child, but rather the coming of the one who will preach the Sermon on the Mount, instruct us by parables, and establish his Church. This is why it makes no sense to welcome the child but reject his teachings. That Gospel has taught from the beginning that life must be protected, including life in the womb. There can be no such thing as a “Pro-choice Christian.”
Prayer: Jesus, in welcoming you, I welcome the Father, and all the truth and grace he gives us through you! Amen.
