Homily from December 25, 2017
Merry Christmas! We have spent the Advent Season preparing, and prepping, and waiting in anticipation for this day, this finale of so many to-do lists, shopping trips, and plans made with loved ones. If you’re like me, you’re always surprised at how quickly Christmas day arrives, and quickly disappears from our calendars. However, today’s Gospel reminds us we have rather reached “the beginning.” And in the beginning, was the Word, was God. Today we are reminded that all this preparation, and all this anticipation we have felt during Advent, has led us to just the start of our story. God has graced us with so many blessings, has spoken to us through prophets, has walked among us as Christ, and we can let that miraculous truth sink in for more than just a mere day. Today is the beginning, of another season of blessings, grace, and truth.
Special thanks to the members of our parish worship commission for writing this daily reflection series.
