A paradoxical Christmas Luke 2:1-14
By Fr Gabriel Julien
As we celebrate Christmas Day, the gospel according to Luke 2:10 mentions that: “I am bringing you good news of great joy”. As we reflect and ponder over the year, perhaps there are very few reasons for us to fully appreciate this “good news of great joy”. We live in a society where violence of all types increases at an alarming rate and we confess it frightens and scares us to such an extent that we could easily forget that Christmas is a time to truly celebrate the “good news of great joy”.
