So... why do we still have the problems?
Through many years, we have celebrated so many Christmas and Easter and others remembering how and what God has done for and to us. However, our lives seem not being changed (transformed) throughout those years. We are usually in a state of “busy and rushing” with life- meetings and deadlines, immense industry of entertainment, advertising , combined with sin, frustration and personal failure , all are crying out for total transformation. We need to ask deeper questions of WHY? Why am I still stuck at one place spiritually? Why am I feeling hurt while I am called after His name? How does Christ’s birth impact my life? How does Christ's birth transform my Spirit?
We stumbled at Christ because we put Christ in our lives on the same level as other needs, the level of seeking bread, and the level of pleasure, knowledge and politics. ….And so the Christ within us appears a thousand times less than His real stature. The lesser and weaker image of our Christianity is our vain attempts to apply the commandments of Christ to our daily problems without Christ. The discrepancy between Christianity and Christ have more than ever become manifested in us and even outcry against us. Let us pray and appeal once more to the Person Christ to born in our heart today. Our humanity will remain miserable until we find God , and it will not find God except in Christ. Let's not forget His Holy word saying that we can’t do anything right “without Him”. Our greatest need today is to feel His coming to us and to receive Him with all our being, then leave Him to speak and act within us. The redemptive work of Christ sums up in our becoming like Him, bearing His qualities once He has filled our life and reigned on us as St. Paul said, “Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified.(II Cor. 13:5).
May the intercession of Our Holy Virgin Mary Be with all of us
