YOU can be a star! … Thursday, December 27

A Rosary Meditation … The Third Joyful Mystery, the Nativity. “And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes.” Luke 2:7. The Christmas season. “Season” because it is a time and not just a day. It’s a time to remember when. Remember when Mary “brought forth” Jesus? I like the words, “brought forth”. What, Who, was brought forth was a gift for the world, for you and for me. And every day we have the chance to bring Jesus forth, give a gift of Him to the world, by letting God’s Holy Spirit give birth in our own lives to a holiness that will be a beacon for those seeking a gift. There are still wise people who are looking for a star to follow in order to find the Child. If we let the Light of the world shine through us we can be that star. And that same Mary who lent herself to the delivery of this Miracle 2,000 years ago will lend a hand now. Just ask. The Gift is there for the asking.

Today … St. John the Apostle. The disciple that Jesus loved. That’s really all that needs to be said, all that needs to be copied, isn’t it? If I add to that statement I’ll only detract from it.

Remember … Remember not to fall for all the worldly media hype. Christmas didn’t end on the 25th. It’s not a day, it’s a season. We celebrate til January 6. If we have a true conversion experience, and remember also that just because you’ve had one doesn’t mean you can’t have more, like Scrooge who saw the Light at the end we can decide to keep Christmas in our hearts every day of the year all year long. I mean, it’s not like you have to give the Gift back on January 7th, now is it?
