If Mary said NO to God, we would not have Christmas. But she said YES, and Christ has come to dwell in the flesh with us through Mary. This Christmas is more than just a time of partying with family and friends. It is rather a time to welcome Christ in our world and in our hearts. It is also a time to thank Mary for her generosity and trust in God for the great role she’s taken to be instrument of God’s love for us.
Like Mary we are also called to be instruments of God’s love for others. So, let’s celebrate Christmas in love and care for each other.
