If you were to be asked this question how would you answer it? As I thought of this question the answer that came to my heart was that the celebration of the birth of Jesus puts our life into perspective. The simplicity of the birth of our Savior reminds us of what has real value and where true beauty lies. Jesus’ simple birth tugs on our hearts. It leads us to look for his presence in the most unlikely places and it helps us to long for the peace that we sense in this beautiful scene. May this Christmas help you to know this peace in your hearts and homes.
God’s continued peace,
Fr. Yvon J. Royer
