A Thursday Reflection from Fr. Joe

December 18, 2014

I am writing this in the dark and quiet time before three special young people who will be confirmed at the Great Vigil of Easter arrive for “class.”  Tonight they will view a film about what the cost of being a Christian may come down to.  This is no syrupy Hallmark TV Christmas film.  Archbishop Oscar Romero was a real man, a scholar and somewhat sheltered and pampered.  God pushed him to become his people’s leader – a voice for the disenfranchised and wretchedly poor and ultimately a martyr for the cause of God’s justice.

As we get closer to Christmas, please remember that we celebrate the coming of the Divine into human life.  “God so loved the world…” we are told.   The Incarnate One is King and God but also sacrificial Lamb – for us.  Being a Christian sometimes means being different, being odd, being laughed at, ignored or hated. Christmas joy is also a mixed blessing.  Christ loves and chooses me.  Christ loves and chooses this parish community to continue HIS work in HIS name.  You are both loved and called to HIS work in HIS name.    Strong by 17
