Christmas - A Perspective

Christmas is not for the faint of heart;
Neither is it for the stout of mind;
It is for the humble man looking for an inn to rest;

Christmas is a time for levelling;
when mountains are made low and the valleys raised;
Where kings and paupers bow low before the manger;

Christmas is not a season of innocence;
It is a season of guilt;
To measure the grace of God given to us;

Christmas is not a time for others;
It is a time for the little child;
Before he dies and saves us from our sins;

Christmas is a season of hope;
And after experiencing hope;
To find faith and charity.

And as you ponder this season;
Do not forget the season's reason;
That God became man that man might become god.

My professor said--

Good thing I don't have guilt (or maybe I'm not just hearing it because of the loud firecrackers and music outside). Not having guilt is already a grace I believe.

For the practical Catholic like me, it's a wonderful time to give, share and be happy. It's the time to thank the unsung heroes in our lives-- the janitor who picks up the free verion of the Asian wall street the previous day in the warehouse so I can share some of the articles to my students; my neighbor who never forgets to greet "Good Morning" to my son and me before going to school; the school bus driver who always helps my daughter with her heavy bag..

"Christmas is a season of hope;
And after experiencing hope;
To find faith and charity."

I think this is what makes me happy. After finding my faith and becoming honestly generous and finding kindness from other people, it makes me happy. I don't know if it is hope. I'm just happy.. :) It might be late but Merry Christmas and a Happy Year 2005 to you and your family! God bless..
