Advent is is the time of year in the Church where our attention is drawn to the great mystery of the Incarnation of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  It is a time of waiting and anticipation. We eagerly await his coming in anticipation of the great joy of His birth on Christmas Day. The birth of Jesus Christ is an event that should make us tremble with awe and wonder and bring us humility and a desire to offer thanksgiving. But often, we are absorbed by the secular traditions of this holiday season, with its focus on gifts and parties, where the significance of this great event is often less than an afterthought.

 

Christmas Day is about the great mystery of God's becoming like us, we who are bound to death, so that He can transform us to become like Him by overcoming our mortality and bring us fully alive in Him. Christmas is not just about God coming to us, but about all of humanity being lifted up into Him who is born on Christmas Day in the form of man, Christ the Incarnation of God.

 

A joyous Feast of the Nativity and a happy and healthful New Year to all our friends in Charlestown.
