25/12/2013 – Solemnity of the Nativity of the Lord (Christmas)

What a happy and joyous day for all of us! Christmas is here! Today we commemorate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, our savior. Yet, He who is the most sublime took a humble form, a loving baby. Jesus, newly born, does not speak; but He is the eternal Word of the Father. It has been said that the manger is a chair or learning.

Today we should too learn the lessons which Jesus teaches us (even when He is just a newly born child) from the very moment He opens His eyes on this blessed land of men (J. Escriva, Christ is Passing by, 14). God humbled Himself to allow us to get near Him, so that we could give our love in exchange for His, so that our freedom might bow, not at the sight of power merely, but before the wonder of His humility (ibid, 18).

The light of that night in Bethlehem has reached many hearts, but nevertheless, at the same time, darkness remains. Sometimes it even seems more intense…The men of that night welcomed the news; they experienced great joy – the joy that comes forth from light. The world’s darkness has been overcome by the light of the birth of God. It does not matter that on the night of God’s birth, the joy of that event should have reached only a few hearts: it does not matter! It is destined for every human heart! It is the joy of the whole human race, a superhuman joy! Could there be any greater joy than this, any greater news than this: man has been accepted by God so as to become His son in this Son of God who has become man? (John Paul II, 1980).

We, the members of Gaudens Cor, wish a joyful Merry Christmas to all of you, your families, friends and relatives. Merry Christmas everyone!!
