“Come, let us go to Bethlehem to see this thing that has taken place…” (Luke 2:15)
Reflection: On Good Friday, we sing, “Were You There When They Crucified My Lord?” What about Christmas? What if we sang, “Were you there when the King of Kings was born?” There is a way to be there, and it is to open ourselves to the joy and meaning of the birth of every child – to see in each child, even the unwanted and unexpected, a reflection of the Christ who comes even today.
Prayer: Lord, open my heart, and open every heart, to the wonder of new life. May we greet you in each new child. Amen!
