gar. When the Newborn lands in the arms of the man he receives the Baby with such joy and love than he seems to be ignoring what is happening around him. He has been given his Redeemer. That’s what matters to him.
As we enter the mystery of the Nativity once again my prayer for you is that your way to Christmas Mass may be such a grace-filled journey that when it will come to receive the Holy Communion you may approach the altar in the same way the shepherd-beggar was coming up to Mary to be given the Baby Jesus. I pray that you may believe that that “First Holy Communion” which happened when Mary gave her Son to Joseph, shepherds and the Wise Men happens every time when you go up to the altar to receive Jesus’ Body and Blood. Then you participate in the mystery of God made man. He is your Saviour, your Redeemer. Don’t feel embarrassed to be a beggar begging to be given your Lord Jesus Christ. Have a Blessed Christmas.
