Merry Christmas! If you have been counting, you know that today is the 12th Day of Christmas. The Incarnation is so important, so miraculous, that we celebrate it not just with a day, but for a season. Eight Days of an Octave, and Christmas days right up until the Baptism of the Lord. And the message of the Incarnation is simple, for Jesus tells us again and again: God loves us. Jesus loves us. And the truth is we need to hear it over and over again. And when love is involved, it demands sharing. Know the love that God has for you, and share that love with others.
