Merry Christmas Philadelphia!
"That is what the Son of Man has done: He came to serve, not to be served." -- Mark 10:44, The Message
Just as today we celebrate the day that Jesus was born into the world, let us pray that Jesus is re-born today in our hearts. He came to take on and die for our sins, thus overcoming death itself. We are all sinners, yours truly included, and no one should be so self-righteous to think that we are free from sin, temptation, or blame or that we can somehow save ourselves. In other words, we all need to be saved. May God forgive us of our sins and may we likewise forgive each other too of our mistakes. May our humility and faith increase so that, ultimately, God's love may save us.
Also, in the spirit of the holiday season, with a special focus on family and fraternity, let us hope and pray for a happy, peaceful, and thankful end to 2015.
May God bless you!
