‘Looking forward to Christmas’

We all look forward to Christmas, young and old.  There is a feeling a well being and everyone shakes hands and offers you his/her good wishes.  That is a good thing; a very good thing.  This is not just a religious feeling but even people who do not believe in God portray this sense of wellbeing towards others.  The lights, the colourful shops, the songs in the streets, the offers to help others – all these help us to remember that we live with other people and if we help them then we are giving them part of our love.

Imagine if this feeling was carried on throughout the year.  Why should I not continue to salute my neighbour every morning or the guy with whom I share the lift.  Why should I not continue to do small, simple gestures of love towards others which cost me nothing but which may make some body feel good today – I may just allow some one to come out from a difficult side street to pass in front of me; I may just smile at an elderly couple and say “Good morning”; I may just look up from my computer to help a colleague at work who is trying to finish within a deadline.

All are simple things which we may do every day of our lives and which spread love towards others; thus multiplying God’s love for us. In every individual I meet there is God’s spirit in him/her.  When I help some one I am doing it to God.  He told us that “Whatever you do for any one of these little ones, you are doing it to Me.” Madre Theresa said (not in quote): It is best to do many small things but with a lot of love.

Monthly Reflection by George Calleja - December 2013 - 'The crib for baby Jesus'

Christmas is once again with us. The joy that baby Jesus was born.......and through Him Salvation was possible.

This month we should make an extra effort to really let Jesus be in us, live in us, live in others. The crib for baby Jesus is that He lives in our hearts.
Jesus has taught us how to love, the love that brings peace in families, between nations, that brings peace in our hearts. The best Christmas present is to give Jesus to others, where there are arguments between married couples.....let there be peace, where there are wars between nations.....let there be peace. Jesus is the source for all peace.

We are encouraged to really do our best, all of us are able to make it happen, that is to know Jesus and let Him in our hearts. Ask people who have experienced Jesus, who really give their heart as a crib for baby Jesus , what it means to have Jesus in your heart.
This is the difference in life......a life of peace through Jesus or a life without Jesus that is without peace.

Happy Christmas to all and may the crib for baby Jesus be your heart.
