A Good Laugh for Christmas
Feast of the Holy Innocents

Day After Christmas-Feast of St. Stephen

After the beauty of the Christmas celebration the Church gives us the martyrdom of Stephen. It seem a real let down on the glory of the Christmas season. Yet that is the whole purpose of the life ahead for the Christ child. He will be rejected, suffer, and be put to death so we also can have eternal life. He shows us the way to eternal life is love and that means even love to the enemy. St. Stephen shows us that through our baptism we too are called to give our life even to the enemy. Let's pray that God will give us the grace to be able one day to do exactly that. Merry Christmas.
