The Power of Testimony

Homily I think we all want to do our part in reminding others the true meaning of Christmas. Unto us is born this day a Saviour, Christ the Lord. We need to look for opportunities to do so. John the Baptist witnessed by his life and used words to testify to Jesus the light so that others might believe. This is a good definition of evangelization. We try to live as Christian but to also give testimony though our words to Jesus our Saviour. John the Baptist was doing such a good job of it that others thought he was the Messiah.

What is God trying to say to us this Christmas?

Homily What is He trying to say to me? And what is He trying to say to you? Why did He come at all? Why did we need Jesus? Why do we still need Him? Well, for one thing, Jesus came to deal with our sins. We were cut off from God because of sin. And Jesus who took on flesh, offered Himself for us. He died on the cross, and rose again. And our sins are washed away in His blood. He offers us forgiveness. He offers us mercy. He offers us love. He simply asks us for our response. Will we accept His offer? It doesn’t matter what we have done.

Pope on Christmas: Share hope, promote peace, give vaccine to all

On a Christmas like no other, Pope Francis prayed for people who could not be with their families because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but he urged everyone to recognize and help those who are suffering even more.

From inside the Hall of Blessings – a long, gold-hued room above the atrium of St. Peter’s Basilica lined on the east with enormous windows and balconies facing St. Peter’s Square – Pope Francis delivered his Christmas message and his blessing “urbi et orbi” (to the city and the world).

As announced by Cardinal Angelo Comastri, archpriest of St. Peter’s Basilica, the solemn blessing included a plenary indulgence for everyone watching on television, listening by radio or following by computer.
