During this Christmas season, we celebrate and rejoice in the good news of the birth of Jesus Christ. On this First Sunday of Christmas, we recall that on the first Christmas Day the Word illumines the world, shining forth to bring all things into being. Today we celebrate the incarnate Word, God becoming flesh to live among us in the person of Jesus Christ then and now. Emboldened by the good news of Christ’s birth, along with the shepherds, Mary and Joseph, and all witnesses to the light of Christ, we declare to the world that we have indeed seen and been transformed by the arrival of “the salvation of our God.” O come, let us adore! In what ways do you express the good news of Jesus’ birth?
