‘’Tis the season to be jolly and joyous! With a burst of pleasure we feel it all right. It’s a season when the Saints can employ us to spread the news about peace and to keep love alive’
I am sure you will recognise these words… they feature in the Muppet Christmas Carol – Kermit singing excitedly when there was only ‘One more sleep ‘til Christmas’. These words remind us of the joy and excitement, as well as the importance of sharing the true message of the season that is almost upon us.
We have reflected well throughout Advent, thinking about preparing our hearts and minds and getting ready to focus on the true meaning of this holy time.
Now, as we prepare to light the final candle on our wreath this weekend, let us focus on the wonder of the season. We pray to the Saints, we join in with the singing of the Angels, and we sit humbly with Mary and Joseph, adoring the precious gift of the Christ child that was given to us all.
May we all celebrate a happy and holy Christmas and dwell in the love and radiance of our new-born Saviour and King… after all, there’s only a few more sleeps ‘til Christmas!
