Midnight 24th Dec 21
Gospel Reading: Matthew 1: 1–25
Dear Community of Christians,
Let us imagine an angel appears in our midst at this very hour.
We would be shaken to the core.
We would experience total confusion.
Yet which message would the angel want to tell us? Are we prepared to hear it?
With certainty, the angel brings the message that the Christ power approaches the earth again with the overflowing of light and love. It is the Grace of the open Cosmos of the Holy Night. Even when we don’t see or hear the angel’s message, it surrounds the earth. Whatever we experience; love, compassion, fervency, is the Angels’ message and mystery during this Holy Night. That is what can accompany us through the year.
