We will forget the worldly things that have been added to Christ's Mass for now. This is a time most Christians will be celebrating the birth of their Lord and Savior. While not something any of the early churches practiced, it is an event truly worth remembering. Only one time in the earth's history has such a thing taken place, and Luke in his account gives the best record of what took place, while Mark does not start his account until Christ's baptism by his cousin John in the Jordan river.
So, wherever you live, and whatever the local customs, do your best to make sure they honor the one and only Son of God, he is the only reason for this up coming Holy Day now called Christmas. In whatever way you and your family honor Christ, God bless each of you, as you praise and worship the Lord for all that he has given to each of us during this past year.
