Meaning of Christmas: Christ takes on the human condition

Read Fr. Baldeon's bio

Christmas, Sun., Dec. 25, 2011
Fr. Elvio Baldeon
Gospel: Luke 2:1-14 “You will find a babe wrapped in swaddling cloths”

Homily summary: As the people of God we have a claim to the peace and joy that Christ brings. Some people don’t have the toys, gifts and so on. For those people I want to say, Christmas is about Christ.

Why this event is so important — it brings us close to the Father; it saves us from hell. Christmas is not just about money, gifts, and toys; it’s about our Savior.

God wants to be close to us. The only way for Him to do this is to take on the human condition. He really can understand our present life. We should call to him in our need. We want Him to be a part of our life. That’s why He wants to be with us.
