Christ is Born Through Us: A Christmas Meditation by Bridget Mary Meehan ARCWP

BMM: Imagine that you were present in the stable with Mary and Joseph when Jesus was born.

Be aware of what you see, hear, or feel...

 

Like Jesus, Mary and Joseph who were forced to flee a ruler's terror, Christ is born today in refugee families, fleeing war and violence in their native lands...


Christ is born each day in the hungry, the homeless, the nobodies, the least and the last in our midst....


Christ is born through us when we visit the sick, comfort the grieving, and help those in need...


Christ is born through us when we look at life with eyes filled with child-like wonder... 


Christ is born through us when we gather at table with family and friends to nourish one another...

 

Christ is born through us…when we listen to people with whom we disagree and treat them with respect.... 


Christ is born through us…when we welcome people of every race, nation and gender into a circle of love... 


We rejoice this Christmas that we are Bethlehem where Christ is always welcome, loved and cherished!
