The message of Christmas is so much more radical than the welcome and beneficial sentiments of warmth and familial love.
That a small refugee infant with parents trying to find safe haven in a foreign country, fleeing from their home and the danger there, poor and homeless, would become a symbol of divine and sacred love, a messenger of peace and generosity of heart, speaking truth to power, standing up for the vulnerable and powerless, giving space and attention to the outsider, the outcast.
An incredible message and life changing if we open our hearts to it.
We need this Christmas message today.
May it strike our hearts at their core, opening us to love all, including and most especially the refugee, the homeless, the foreigner, the poor, the vulnerable and outcast.
May it be so.
And may you and your family and friends have a Merry Christmas.
Wishing you all that is beautiful and beneficial today and everyday.
May you be happy, may you be safe and at ease, and may you be free from suffering.
