Christmas Day

December 25:

The joyful welcoming of our Savior began at the midnight mass (more like 10pm) at St. Margaret of Scotland parish on Christmas Eve. The worship was beautiful and music...heavenly! On Christmas Day, we led the congregation in singing and praising God. "Today is born our Savior, Jesus Christ the Lord!" was the response to the Psalm we belted out joyfully at our local parish, St. Elizabeth of Hungary. It was such a joy to welcome Jesus - the REAL reason for the season. After mass, we all "chipped in" in preparing the savory Christmas dinner which we enjoyed with Christmas music. The afternoon was filled with excitement as opened our Christmas gifts around the Christmas tree. We also enjoyed discovering our "Advent Angels" - fellow sisters who had "secretly" prayed for and journeyed with us during Advent. We crowned our evening with Christmas songs at vespers and thereafter watched a movie together.

PS. How did you celebrate Our Lord's birth this Christmas?
