Regnavit Deus tuus! (Is 52:7)

The Christmas celebration reminds us of the King of Peace - Jesus Christ who was born in Bethlehem. The Son of God became flesh in order to announce the will of his Father to the world. He visited us to bring good news and to tell us that we all are brothers and sisters. Also he promised that our goal is to live eternally in the kingdom of heaven with all the angels and holy people. United with Christ we are called to praise God the Father who has loved us so much. With love and peace in our hearts we are to contemplate God and to rejoice in him. 
The world was created by God, it is maintained by him and all the people might attain salvation through him. Although we are weak and fragile, we can be strengthened and sanctified. The merciful Father comforts us if we worship him, the Son redeems us if we praise him and the Holy Spirit fulfills us when we open our souls for the divine grace. Therefore, let us share the Good News to all the ends of the earth because the salvation of God is close at hand for all believers.

Nobiscum Deus (Mt 1:23)

Christmas is all about relationships. The most important one is the relation with the Holy Spirit. If a person is united with the Spirit of God, he is also able to build a good relationship with others. Accordingly, love towards people shows that a man is open-hearted and friendly. Thus, a friend of God is at the same time a friend of people. Also such a person is in good relations with the family or community members. When the Holy Spirit dwells in the soul, the person takes care of others and does not allow anyone to suffer. In the mind of holy ones there are pure intentions so that those people are aware of the needs of others. The person who is fulfilled with the Spirit can recognize the gentle voices of angels and saints. Consequently, the man of God is never afraid because he follows the orders of the divine will. Overall, he remembers that the union with God leads to happiness.

Genua debilia (Is 35:3).

Your life is devided into the periods of sadness and the periods of joyfulness. Every time you are sad the Lord speaks to you and announces that happines will return. Since everything is necessary in your life. The difficulties arise but you are strong enough to overcome them. You are called to bloom and rejoice. You are not created to be unhappy or disappointed. Even if you struggle a lot you are a child of God. Eventually you ought to find rest in the kingdom of heaven where saints see the splendor and glory of the Lord.
During the earthly experience you must be strengthened and found worthy of the heavenly treasures. When you are feeble and fatigue, the Lord helps you through the holy sacraments. He cures you from the spiritual and corporal weaknesses. He makes all the senses of your soul act properly. He ransoms you and fulfills your heart with divine grace. As a result you become joyful and blessed in all your endeavours.

Deus sempiternus Dominus (Is 40:28)

During your prayers and meditations you meet with the Holy One. You experience his presence and the divine peace enters your soul. Similarly while you contemplate the wonders of nature, you discover the God's hand which is hidden in the universe. For God the Father keeps all the creatures in His power and leads them properly. Thanks to God's might and strength they prosper and live. 
However, some people do not trust in the Lord. They think that he is not present in their lives. They try to decide about everything on their own. Even if they have heard about the Creator, they do not pay attention to his laws and statutes. For that reason they easily faint and despair. Especially when the difficulties appear and something goes wrong. 
On the contrary, those who believe in God and hope in the Lord renew their strength every day. They fly like eagles and attain the divine wisdom. They are strong because they fulfill God's will. Accordingly, they bless the Lord who is merciful and gracious for all.
