What Christmas Reminds Us Of
After the season is over,
the Christmas lights come down,
the fragrance of pine dissipates into the air,
and the Christmas music
no longer plays on the radio,
we may ask, ‘What happens next?’
The wonder and awe of Christmas
is just a beginning.
Christmas reminds us that
the babe born in Bethlehem
has given us purpose for living,
and what happens next to us
largely depends on how we embrace
our Saviour, Jesus Christ, and follow Him.

We can still sing these songs!!!! But singing is not enough!!!
Today too, amid so much darkness, we need to see the light of hope and to be men and women who bring hope to others. To protect creation, to protect every man and every woman, to look upon them with tenderness and love, is to open up a horizon of hope; it is to let a shaft of light break through the heavy clouds; it is to bring the warmth of hope!
— Pope Francis
