Christmas

Christmas is one of the most beautiful seasons in the Church that allows us to reflect on the love, the extreme love that our Heavenly Father has for us all.  If we celebrate Christmas the way it was meant to be celebrated, if we understood and lived the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ, our lives will be transformed.

Unfortunately through the years, this season has become highly commercialized and much of its true meaning has been lost.  For example, Christ who is the reason for the season, has been replaced with a big “X”, and the joyous “Merry Christmas” greeting has been replaced with “season’s greetings” and “happy xmas” and alike, none of which says anything about the great importance of God entering into humanity to save us, his people from our sins.  Otherwise, we would have been eternally dammed without any hope of eternal life. It is our hope that these posts as well as the very special programming we have on FullyCatholic Radio will enlighten your hearts and minds of the true meaning of Christmas.

Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ who came with a specific goal; to be the Saviour of the world.  When this message hits home, when it really registers in your heart and mind, you can’t help but fall on your knees and worship the King of kings and the Lord of lords.
