Rejoice! Jesus is Coming to Us!

By Agnes Kioskli

Starting the First Sunday of advent,  we light our advent candles for the next four weeks. Each candle represents, Peace, Love, Joy and Jesus.

Soon we will rejoice because our Prince of Peace is coming! He brings us peace, He brings us joy and He brings us love !

Christ coming to us is the real meaning of Christmas!  He is our King, yet He was born in a manger! From birth Jesus taught us humility!

How about us? How do we humble ourselves before God? 

Christ humbled Himself before us to make it known to us that humility is the queen of all virtues!

Let us honor The Baby Jesus, by going to confession and humbly ask God to give us the grace of humility, peace and love. Let us honor Him by joining all Catholics throughout the world  celebrating His birth by attending mass! Mass is the highest form of prayer and the best gift we can offer to God and to one another!

Daily mass attendees are like the saints who lived a life of grace ! However not everyone can go to mass everyday, but at least we should try our very best on Christmas Day!

May God grant us all His most choicest blessing and love as we celebrate His holy birth!

A blessed Christmas to all!
