What do we celebrate or when can we call some event a celebration. ? We have many celebrations of different types. It could be social, religious, political etc. But these events turn into celebration, only if it brings joy, happiness, better understanding, betterment of lives. When we see some sort of joy a glow on the face of out brothers, sisters. Every religious Avatars of any religion for that matter is a joyous event a moment of celebration if it offers understanding, tolerance and love because God himself comes down among us to uplift and cheer us and it reassures us that nothing is lost there in hope. Our God is a loving, forgiving God. He is father - like

And so friends that is the celebration that we have at Christmas, The birth of Jesus.

The cause of our celebration is to respond to the call of God. God wants us to treat each other with love, to forgive, the way God forgives us of our short comings. The teachings of Jesus are not very difficult but we need a heart and mind and will to do it.

There is an incident in the Bible that John the Baptist disciples asks John what to do change our life to be a better person and John says in St. Lukes Gospel Ch.3 Verses 10.

What should we do then?” the crowd asked him

John answered, “Anyone who has two coats should share with the one who has none, and anyone who has food should do the same.”

Even tax collectors came to be baptized. “Teacher,” they asked, “what should we do?”

Don’t collect any more than the prescribed for you,

Soldiers asked him “ And, we , what should we do, ?He said to them, Do not extort money from anyone by threats or false accusation and be satisfied with your wages.

This teaching is so relevant to us; to be a new person, to belong to a new order, a new society is what the celebration of Christmas is all about.

Friends let us examine our conscious and take a U turn, leaving all that is not Godly, let us by our doings become children of God.

Happy Christmas. Happy New Year. Let our new year be New and Happy in every way.
