Christmas Past and Present

Barasoain Weekly Reflection for 24 – 30 December 2017

“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.”

Luke 2:11

“Three years ago,” a journal read. “Things are a little different than it is now.” The writer is referring to the past Christmas he has been. Surely that Christmas was very memorable for him that he has not yet forgotten the events of those days.

An even more memorable event occurred on the Christmas Day more than 2000 years ago. Our savior, Jesus Christ was born in a manger in Bethlehem. His birth signaled the start of God’s plan of saving humankind from its sins through His only begotten Son. His birth from His mother, Mary, conceived without sin, made him fully human like us only not sinful as we are.

Christmas has always been memorable for everyone of us, be it a family reunion, a time for celebration, happiness, joy or to praise God as a whole makes this season a memorable and truly extraordinary. But whatever way we celebrate it, we all do it because Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was born, came to Earth to save from our sins and to fulfill God’s promise. Truly He has come indeed!


Behold Jesus Christ is born! Alleluia!
