Of the many General Intercessions at Christmas Eve Mass, one was directed towards non-believers. When I knelt down after receiving the Eucharist, my thoughts were on those souls. May the gift they open be their hearts ... to experience the love, peace and hope that can only come from Christ Jesus.
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor,
Mighty God, Everlasting Father,
Prince of Peace.
Happy Birthday, Jesus!
