Christmas at Midnight

December 26, 2010


At Midnight Mass, we hear of the shepherds gathering around the new-born baby Jesus.  Of all the illustrations of this scene, my favorite comes from ‘The Nativity’ which portrays a dialogue between Mary, Joseph and a shepherd just before the birth.

In the movie, the shepherd tells Mary that we are all given a gift and admits that his only gift is the hope of waiting for one.

Tonight, we join the world in silent hope, and in our participation we are given a great gift.
