The good about Christmas is that it is a joy-filled day in which everybody has the chance to have something joyful for. The thing I hate about Christmas is that because it only comes once in a year, things that were around last year but gone before the Christmas Day will be obvious when this day comes.
I’ll give you one example: One of my friends has lost his father this year. Last night, after my midnight mass duty, he was sobering about his father. He wishes that he was still around to celebrate Christmas this year. Unfortunately, it is no longer possible.
As this day runs through its course, and we are all enjoying ourselves, let us pause for a moment to think for those who have lost something this year. Their Christmas may have a void this year, and we are called upon to fill the gap, or at least pray for them.
Today, Jesus Christ came down on Earth to offer Himself. Let us follow in His example of offering ourselves for those who need us.
