Christmas music has been on the radio since the beginning of November. Decorations have been up in our homes and in the malls for some time now. Yet, in the Church, our focus has been on one thing. The coming of Christ, who is now near, very near. When we gather, we have paused to take in the miracle of this historic event in salvation history. The Advent wreath, a powerful symbol of patient waiting, has been our simple decoration in our Church. For us, disciples of Christ, Christmas begins with the birth of Christ at Christmas. This is in fact when the 12 days of Christmas begin. This is when we joyously begin singing our Christmas music. It continues through to the Epiphany, the manifestation of Christ. This is what Christmas is all about. As we make our final Christmas preparations, let us find peace in the beauty of this season, and what this season is truly about.
This is our faith, this is what we believe!
