Merry Christmas

Allow me to say on behalf of all of my Seminarian brothers, Merry Christmas.

I saw the beginning of the Midnight Mass from the National Shrine last evening. As always, I was struck by the announcement of the birth of Christ at the beginning of the Mass. How beautiful that we who have been keeping our slow and deliberate Advent journey are now rewarded with the birth of the Messiah. Let us celebrate and rejoice. But let us not forget that he is born into the shadow of the cross. By his birth he begins our salvation. By his death is it accomplished. How great a savior we have been given.
