Pope Francis asks us to prepare our hearts for Christmas ! He reminds us that our hearts need to be open so Jesus can meet us there.
Christmas, he stressed, is a meeting with the Lord in faith. The coming of Christ means allowing Him to making everything new again. “We are on a path of faith…to encounter the Lord and above all to let ourselves be met by Him!” the Pope exclaimed.
For this encounter to happen, the Holy Father told the faithful that one must have an open heart that allows one to be found by the Lord. “He is the Lord and He will tell me what he has for me, because the Lord does not look at us all together, as one mass. No, no! He looks at each one of our faces, in the eyes, because love is not a love like that, abstract: it is a concrete love,” he said.
“To let yourselves be found by the Lord is precisely this: to let yourselves be loved by the Lord!”
Merry Christmas ! May each of us experience the Lord Jesus’ love for us this Christmas season and into the New year 2018 !
