And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we behold his glory, the glory of the Only Begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1: 14)
When we are young, we dreamt about a new earth and heaven, without violence and evil. Responding to this, our basic desire, Our Lord is promising us that he will come to us with his entire kingdom. A kingdom of love, justice, harmony and peace and that he will transform our world.
He is doing this. He is making this world a new world, a better world through our service. He comes to us and transforms us from within our hearts and through this he changes this, our world.
So let us welcome him as he comes to us. Let us open our hearts for him, that he may come, touch our hearts, fill us with peace and joy and that we may share these, his great gifts with one another.
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and God bless you all,
