What is Christmas? These days, the holiday is celebrated nationwide filled with festivities, pretty decorations, and gifts. In truth, the Feast of the Nativity is a glorious event in history that cannot be truly defined. The birth of the Son of God transcends every attempt to explain the incomprehensible. Every year though, we struggle to remember the true meaning of Christmas among the holiday shopping, the pictures with Santa, and the never-ending wish lists. That is why this year we are devoting the month to remind ourselves of some Christmas Truths: that Christmas is really a celebration of God's divine generosity and love; a reminder that God longs to dwell among us and pursues us just as any good, Heavenly Father would do.
“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:14
