The Holy Days of Christmas | The 3rd Day of Christmas
Christmas is the birth of the divine from human life. It is the recognition that every life bears the nature of God to be lived out upon the earth. The Christmas story is about one person, but the Christmas message is about each of us recognizing the divine potential of our own life.
Christmas is about divine visitations to ordinary persons conceiving new life within. Can we not imagine our own life being a womb that brings forth grace and love, healing and forgiveness? As we give ourselves to simple prayer and little actions can we not imagine God taking our humble offering like Jesus took a few loaves and fish, and feed a multitude of others?
Let Christmas be a time of holy visitations in your life. Let the quiet and long dark nights of winter be a womb for holy light breaking forth from our life.
