Today should not be a night of Sorrows, or simply a night of food and drink. It's a night of praise, Thanksgiving and recognition of divine action in our midst. Let's not make our Christmas a pagan event, because, in fact, Christmas came to free us of paganism, to introduce us in the faith in salvation and deliverance which God has brought to us. Do the celebration of Christmas, our House and family a Christian event, with prayer, and the loving presence of God among us. What matters least is what we eat, let's give gifts or win, because what matters most is the gift that was given to us by God. Many times, our Christmases are full of foreign elements, unrelated or less important than the fact he means. Sometimes, our Christmases have everything, champagne, food, etc, but doesn't have the loving presence of Jesus. I can't conceive of someone who will meet, the family will be together that night, but they won't pray, won't raise your arms to the sky, will not thank God. Is essential and fundamental that we celebrate with you. Your priority that night's celebrate Christmas of the Lord, be with your loved ones and all those who believe that Jesus is the Savior, liberator and the blessing that God brought every one of us! Blessed be God, who visits us tonight! I'm sure God has a very special visit to make you, your home and your family. Just as Mary and Joseph tried to find a place for Jesus to be born, but people were very busy and had no space for them, God still looking for space, place to do this, to celebrate the liberation and salvation. My House, your House, your heart must be the place of reception of the God who visits us. That He grant us a night happy and very blessed!
