We are in the early days of this joyful Christmas season. This mystery is a gradual unfolding of the wonderful truth of Christ sharing in our humanity so that we can experience divine life. This season includes the feasts of Christmas, Holy Family, Mary the Mother of God, Epiphany, and Baptism of the Lord. Each celebration builds on the previous ones. One of the prayers on Christmas day captures the meaning of this mystery: “O God, who wonderfully created the dignity of human nature and still more wonderfully restored it, grant that we may share in the divinity of Christ, who humbles himself to share in our humanity.”
Let yourself be present to the gradual unfolding of this wonder-full mystery that graces us in the Eucharistic celebrations whether you are able to come to the in-church Masses or follow along on YouTube. Ponder this question: How does Christ want to be more part of your life so that you can be more part of the life of Christ?
