“Gift-giving Ideas for the Christmas Season”

 

 “If the Advent season is a time of preparation, the season of Christmas is most definitely a time of celebration. Most of the customs and traditions associated with the feast are celebratory in nature, celebrating not only the birth of Our Lord but also, in a very real sense, celebrating life itself. Perhaps it is because of the presence of the Infant Jesus, an infant with the power all infants seem to embody to bring people to a point of quiet reflection of thankfulness and praise. There are not many people who can look at a small infant and not think of the fragileness of life and the wonder of creation. For many reasons, and possibly because of the atmosphere that surrounds the season, there is a sense of celebration. There is no other time of the year when the landscape is so drastically changed, when lights and garlands and trees, when brightly colored packages and abundance of good cheer seem to be present everywhere.”

“The Christmas Mystery”

Jesus was born in a humble stable, into a poor family. Simple shepherds were the first witnesses to this event. In this poverty heaven’s glory was made manifest. The Church never tires of singing the glory of this night:

The Virgin today brings into the world the Eternal

And the earth offers a cave to the Inaccessible

The angels and shepherds praise him

And the magi advance with the star,

For you are born for us,

Little child, God eternal!

To become a child in relation to God is the condition for entering the kingdom. For this, we must humble ourselves and become little. Even more: to become ‘children of God’ we must be ‘born from above’ or ‘born from God.’ Only when Christ is formed in us will the mystery of Christmas be fulfilled in us. Christmas is the mystery of this ‘marvelous exchange’:

O marvelous exchange! Man’s Creator has become man, born of the Virgin. We have been made sharers in the divinity of Christ who humbled himself to share our humanity.”

- Catechism of the Catholic Church 525, 526

A Christmas Hymn from the Early Church’s Liturgy of St. James -

 

“Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence”

Let all mortal flesh keep silence
And with fear and trembling stand;
Ponder nothing earthly minded,
For with blessing in his hand
Christ our God to earth descending
Comes our homage to demand.

King of kings yet born of Mary,
As of old on earth he stood,
Lord of lords in human vesture,
In the body and the blood,
He will give to all the faithful
His own self for heavenly food.

Rank on rank the host of heaven
Spreads it vanguard on the way
As the Light of Light, descending
From the realms of endless day,
Comes the powers of hell to vanquish
As the darkness clears away.
