Every year we wish our friends and loved one’s “Merry Christmas” but do we know what Christmas actually means? Christmas means Christ’s Mass; where we celebrate the birth of Christ,
a man whose sole purpose was to die for our sins. Funny enough, even people who are not Christians celebrate the Mass of Christ.
So what I ask is, “Do we celebrate the ‘Mass of Christ’ or like the masses do we celebrate the ‘holiday season’ ”?
“Why will someone be born with a destiny such as death for the sake of others?” Yet He readily embraced it. The answer I believe is LOVE ; A word which has lost it’s meaning over the years.
As Christians we must emulate this kind of love, a selfless love, a love which is pure and asks for nothing in return and a love which is eternal.
So in order to celebrate the Mass of Christ and not just a holiday, let us show love to all and not just friends and family.
Merry X’Mas and a Happy New Year.
