Nativity of the Lord: Christmas

REFLECTION During the Advent Season we have contemplated the three comings of Christ: in history, at the end-times, and into our

hearts. Today we celebrate the Nativity of the Lord his coming in history as fully as we can. In celebrating the Nativity,

we fervently pray that our dear Lord will also be born in our hearts. Then we, like the Blessed Mother, can share his presence

with the world around us.
