Read more: Unselfish love…The essence of love is not that I love you the way I see it fit, but I have to love you, as you expect it from me. Whatever makes the other one really happy , often is not the same thing that makes me happy.

.".This child is destined for the falling and the rising of many..” On Christmas Eve because of Mary’s “yes” God became man !! During every holy mass based on the “yes” of the people gathered with their priest the bread and wine becomes God in the form of the Holy Eucharist!! In truth every single church is like the cave in Bethlehem , every holy mass Christmas Eve, every altar the manger in Bethlehem, in front of which following the example of the shepherds , the wisemen we can also fall on our knees , to greet the same One who on Christmas Eve became man , our Lord Jesus Christ !!
With love

When the time came for their purification according to the law of Moses, they brought him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord23(as it is written in the law of the Lord, ‘Every firstborn male shall be designated as holy to the Lord’), 24and they offered a sacrifice according to what is stated in the law of the Lord, ‘a pair of turtle-doves or two young pigeons.’
Now there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon;* this man was righteous and devout, looking forward to the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit rested on him. 26It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Messiah.* 27Guided by the Spirit, Simeon* came into the temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him what was customary under the law, 28Simeon* took him in his arms and praised God, saying, 
‘Master, now you are dismissing your servant* in peace, according to your word; for my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the presence of all peoples,  a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel.’
And the child’s father and mother were amazed at what was being said about him. 34Then Simeon* blessed them and said to his mother Mary, ‘This child is destined for the falling and the rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be opposed 35so that the inner thoughts of many will be revealed—and a sword will pierce your own soul too.’
Luke 2, 22-35

We can all be shepherds , wise men of the Orient and your home will become the cave in Bethlehem , with the Life in it, if you open your heart towards our lord Jesus Christ .

Read more: True repentance…If in our everyday earthly life, we did something wrong , and feel sorrow because we are scared of  being called to account , from punishment or miss out on a reward - this type of remorse is not really remorse as it is based on selfishness. However if I  observe , look at God , seeing His great goodness I am genuinely sorry for missing out  on love , goodness. This type of suffering cleanses one. There is no purification, cleansing without suffering! That thought strikes me the most that neither God nor my fellow man deserved this from me , in whose suffering He also takes His share.

Read more: Peace ..blessing….gift..I believe that on the night of Christmas or in the stillness of their  shelter in Nazareth the Blessed Virgin and Saint Joseph did experience the fulness of human existence , peace , joy. They did not have the luxuries offered by our world , the “wonders" of  electric , chrome , plastic but they were there for one another , the God-given gift , blessing. They did not consume however they became a gift.

Read more: The night of Holy Christmas…I like to picture infant of me the quiet, simple cave in Bethlehem , with the Holy Family in there with the Christ Child. What an astounding simplicity ! The Lord of the Universe comes with empty hands into this world ! He does not bring anything  because He Himself is the blessing , the gift. “16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3,16

Read more:  The two extremes...“ Somehow a long time ago I did not believe that man is capable of changing so much in every respect. We are like this, this is what we got, end of the story. 
Now somehow I feel that every man carries within himself the extremes , we can be like a savage beast but also the composer of the Anthem of Love ( Saint Paul , Letter to the Corinthians) . What actually comes  from us, what we develop into , what we become , what we turn into whether we can become the writer of the “Anthem of Love” , the kind-hearted man bearing the features of God, perhaps this is the greatest question.”

Read more: Actually who may I be ?Think about it , is your existence really God’s blessing for the other one ! Ask yourself : “ Am I in reality a gift for the other person? This my day today, this sentence that I have just said, was this like a caress ? A kind hug ? A blessing ? A healing balm for the other’s wound ? A warm spring shower, a sunshine  that brings the timid buds in my companion to burst into a flower ? “ Surely God did not create anybody to be a curse, a difficulty or a troublesome scandal in this world. The Lord would like that all of us in our own way be His blessing , His gift , symbols of His love for our families, our people, our nation, or church .Become what you were born for, dare to take responsibility for yourself and you will be happy !!
