Theology on Tap - “The Greatest Gift: Living Christmas Joy Every Day”
Thursday, December 12th:
Joy to the world, the Lord is come - let earth receive her King!
The Christmas season is, by most accounts, the most joyous time of year. This is because we get to celebrate the Incarnation of Jesus Christ. 2,000 years ago, the world changed forever with the birth of Jesus. God walked among us. And once every 365 days, we take time to remember that fact. But we often fail to remember that Jesus promised us that He would be with us always unto the end of days. He's still here. Present. With us. In a very real way, we should be celebrating the Incarnation--the Word made Flesh--every single day. Where and how can we do that? At Mass. By receiving the Eucharist. Joy to the world. The Lord is come. Let earth receive her king.
