Christmas, with its sparkling decorations and gaily wrapped gifts, is the most celebrated holyday in many people’s lives. Christmas is even a holiday so brightly prominent is it in our culture. Christmas shines like the Bethlehem Star into the dark shadows of our workaday world. Christmas is the peaceful pause in the noisy hustle and bustle of our daily work and relationships.Yet for many the grueling preoccupation in the preparations for Christmas is with the jingle-belled material things: shopping, decorations, gifts, exotic foods, visits, entertainment, etc.Sometimes many forget the fundamental spiritual meaning of Christmas. These daily meditations are geared to help you to become more exuberantly aware of the primary meaning of Christmas, namely, the love of God so boundless that God gave us his only divine son as a human babe, Jesus, to live among us, teach us with his stories, lay down his life for us and rise again on the third day. These daily meditations were written in the hope that you will be able to probe, with dynamic and contagious faith, the gospel stories to increase and deepen your spiritual development during the Advent and Christmas seasons.
