A Blessed Christmas - 2007

by: Rev. Fr. Mathai Varkey Puthukkunnathu

The sublime nature of celebrating the Divine Nativity of Christ, our Savior, is related to one's response to the Blessed Child born in Bethlehem 2000 years ago. The response of the innkeeper is relevant in contemporary times; when Joseph and Virgin Mary wanted to find a room where the Heavenly Child could be born. He was not unfriendly, but his inn was packed, his hands were full, his mind was preoccupied.

This is the answer that brings forth, even by Christians today. Like the innkeeper in Bethlehem, we cannot find room for Christ. All the accommodations in our hearts are already taken up by other crowding interests. The response is neither atheism nor defiance. It is preoccupation and the feeling of being able to get on reasonably well without Christianity.

But the response of The Magi the Wise Men through their suffering for the Christ Child is the perfect laudable example of accepting the Savior. It is imperative that we keep Christ and His interest in our Christmas Celebrations.

My humble self wish to all readers a Blessed Christmas - 2007 and a Happy and prosperous New Year - 2008.

May God bless us all.

It is important for us to reflect carefully on what the Evangelist is trying to put before us about God's gift to us of Jesus, born in Bethlehem's manger, together with the clear response God asks of each one of us.

Christmas Message-2007: The Message of Love and Peace
Its nothing but the pure love of God towards the mankind that has made God to send his only begotten son. There is no doubt about that. His decision made into truth around two thousand years ago. This would be the most basic belief which we all learned from the day from which we started hearing about Christianity.
