Fr. Brian Christmas Eve 11:00 p.m.

This year I have noticed a lot has changed in our culture.  It is actually getting difficult to find a non-secularize expression of Christmas.  The movies that we love to watch are more about romance or families then they are the manger scene and story of Jesus.  Even on the radio there are more Rudolph tunes than “The First Noel”. 

Though I was a child who thought I was brilliant beyond my years, many of us live life like I was acting in that play many years ago.


We are all on the naughty list, and Jesus is on the nice list.  So God sent Jesus who took our naughtiness so that we could be on the nice list too.  Being on the nice list makes all the difference.

Naughty or nice.  The standard is Jesus.  Foolishness or enhancing God’s glory, how would you describe your life?

Until the curtains close, God extends his invitation to you.  It is His desire to see you reflect His glory that others might see and hear.  And in the glory that shines around them, come and bow down at the feet of Jesus. 

it is not the society’s role to tell the Christmas story.  Sure it is nice and comforting when it does.  But it is the story of your life and mine that is meant to be the reflection of God’s glory, the gift that He gave 2000 years ago.  Your life and mine are a Christmas play that is never meant to end.  This is a truth will always remain, you and I people who believe in Jesus are to be the angelic voice that leads others to the Glory of God’s invitation.
