Unfortunately, our materialistic and consumer society has convinced many that this great Feast that we celebrate is all about giving and receiving gifts. If we faithfully followed our Advent journey, we re-discovered the true meaning of Christmas – celebrating the great gift of the Father in Jesus his Son, the Saviour of the world. This gift is for each and every one of us, for our happiness and holiness, for our peace and joy, for our salvation and eternal life with God. What gift are we offering to the Lord Jesus at his birth? The greatest gift that Jesus awaits is the giving of ourselves to him in love and service, in faithful discipleship and generous stewardship. No need for a card, or wrapping paper or a bow, just a heart renewed in his love and open to the grace that he gives. Happy Birthday Lord Jesus!
