Merry Christmas means a lot more than trees, Santa Claus and gifts. Merry Christmas is based on the fact that 2011 years ago a miracle took place. That miracle offered hope and salvation to all mankind.
Seen in that light, Christmas is an awesome and awe inspiring moment of faith and redemption. Christmas is “merry” because it is the burst of light which offers to heal and to redeem all mankind.
We hope everyone can take a few minutes off from shopping, working, multitasking, and all of the other daily things that consume our lives. Take a few moments to relax and reflect on the miracle that happened in Bethlehem. Then open your mind and your heart to let that miraculous event touch you.
