Geeky Catholic Christmas 2018

Gospel Reading: Matthew 1:1-25 (Vigil), Luke 2:1-14 (Midnight), Luke 2:15-20 (Dawn), or John 1:1-18 (Day)

Highlight: "Behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people."

Reflection: We have great news. Our Creator loves us so much that he became one of us, to save us from sin and prepare a place for us in heaven, a place of endless joy. There is literally no greater news than that. But so often we just keep that news to ourselves. It's just part of our religion, and we don't want to impose that on other people. But surely there are ways of sharing this fantastic news without "imposing," right? We don't have to stand on the street corner handing out pamphlets. We can share our faith through our behavior, through our attitudes, and through our relationships with others. So let's "go tell it on the mountain"!

Geeky Quote: "I come with glad tidings of a world made free." - Loki "Reindeer Games" Laufeyson, The Avengers

Prayer: Jesus, thank you for coming into my life. Give me the courage to proclaim Your gospel in everything I do. Amen.

I had a great time preparing these reflections. Such a great time, that when I got to the end of Advent, I didn't want to stop. I don't have the time to put something like this together every day, but starting this Sunday, I will be writing a "Geeky Catholic Sunday" post every week (hopefully)! Merry Christmas, and I hope you'll check back in this weekend!
