For us men and for our salvation…

A few thoughts on Christmas Eve…

Two thousand years ago, we didn’t have Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, but we did still all have the same feelings of friendship, kinship, and love.

As we rush about today, as I am sure many will be, let’s really take the time to say to those that we love, that we love them. And remember the ‘reason for the season’ is that our God became a little baby born in Bethlehem  so he could grow to be the man that paid for all our sins on the Cross at Calvary. Without the Incarnation, none of this would have been possible.

So remember, tonight, for those who don’t do it as a personal devotion (or attend Extraordinary Form Mass regularly) remember at Midnight Mass

Genuflect at the words of the Incarnation in the Nicene Creed.

For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.

And I hope that we all have a very peaceful and blessed Christmas, and I will be remembering many friends at Midnight Mass this evening.
