I congratulate you my dear beloved children on this blessed Christmas, wishing you the blessings of joy, richness and peace in your life, work, and families from the Holy Born Baby in the manger blessings. May all Christmas celebrations find you filled with peace in spirit and good health.

The Precious Event

The incarnation and birth of our Lord Jesus Christ is one of the most precious events in the history of mankind. In this event we meet various aspects of God’s creation. For example:

  •  Individuals: Joseph, Herod, Mary, Elizabeth and Simeon.
  • Groups: Jewish shepherds, foreign Magi and children.
  • Animals: in the manger and also in the temple offerings.
  • Heavenly hosts: angels, and the Archangel’s annunciation of the Birth of Christ
  • Towns: small towns such as Bethlehem, large cities such Jerusalem, and countries such as Egypt
  • Different titles: the carpenter, the king, the Virgin, the prophetess, the elder, and Emmanuel

It is indeed a very precious event, but we will choose three elements only:

  • First: The New Name, Emmanuel
  • Second: The New Reality, the Incarnation
  • Third: The New Depth, Love
