It is occurring to me this year, more than most, how truly radical the Christmas message really is.
Out of wedlock.
To 2 parents.
In abject poverty.
This is a truly subversive message in our culture today. Were do our loyalties lie? What is important to us as a culture?
Look upon the Holy Family and realize how rare this type of love is today. How often do we choose ourselves in place of Love?
The Christmas Message is truly one for our times. It is not something whose time has passed, but, rather, something--Someone--whose time is eternally now.
