May the birth of our Saviour be a source of happiness and joy for you and your loved ones.
During Advent, we were invited to immerse our minds and hearts in the depth of the Christmas mystery. We did this in prayer, seeing a Nativity play, participating in a Carol Service and by giving ourselves to prepare a gift or an offering to others etc.
Like our Blessed Lady, these events helped us to prepare ourselves to carry Jesus in our hearts, so we can give birth to him in others and carry Him to the world. This is our joy! It cannot be found in possessions or worldly success. Joy is not an external quality but one that is forged inside us, deep within the recess of our hearts and minds.
