And the angel said, “Do not be afraid; for see – I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people.” - Luke 2:9
We are readying our hearts for this good news indeed. May we take the time to hear what that angelic message meant. This Child about to be born, this Word uttered into our world, has come to bring us joy, a joy that is meant to be universal. Is there anyone we might be excluding?
Let us pray for open and welcoming hearts as we near Christmas.
