The Nativity Prayer Table

 

December is the month of Charity

 
As December begins, so too does the season of Advent, and Advent leads us week by week to Christmas, that most wonderful of our holidays. We are called at this time of year to prepare ourselves, to leave behind what separates us from God, to make things new within our hearts, as we wait the coming of a new-born child. We are called to remember a birth in Bethlehem 2000 years ago, while at the same time invited to experience that birth anew in our lives today.

It is easy to get caught up in the festivities of Christmas -- the lights, the shopping, the line-ups to see Santa, the excitement of gifts -- but this Christmas let's also try to keep ourselves and our family close to the real meaning of Advent and Christmas, and remember the words written long ago: "Unto you is born this day a Saviour who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign unto you -- you will find a babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger."

 

 
May we all approach that manger this Advent season.
O. CROSBY
