In Excelsis Deo beautifully sung by Tatiana begins this reflection by Fr. Mike on the real meaning of Christmas. He speaks of the deep desires of our hearts, outside all the gift-giving and hassles of this holiday time.The most important gifts are health, family and friends. But sometimes we even ignore those in our busy lives. It is time to look at them and value those special gifts.
The biggest gift is, of course, the gift of God come down on earth as a little baby, vulnerable in every way. God loves me and forgives me all my sins. What greater gift than this can we wish for?
Lupe returns toward the end of the program to re-enforce the true meaning of this wonderful feast.Tatiana ends the program singing Infant Redeemer.
