December Officially dedicated to The Holy Infancy.

Adorable Child Jesus, in You wisdom resides, divinity dwells, and all eternal riches are found. You are the beauty of Heaven, the delight of the Angels, and the salvation of mankind. Here I am prostrated at Your feet, O source of innocence, purity, and holiness. Although I am a slave of sin, I belong to You by the undeniable right of Your sovereignty.

I hereby render to You as my Lord-my King and my dignified and most adorable Savior-my faith and my homage with the shepherds, and my act of adoration with the Magi. I give myself entirely and without restriction into Your powerful hands, which drew all the universe from nothingness and preserved it in the admirable order that we see.

O lovable Child, grant that as a result of my total devotion to honoring the mystery of Your divine Childhood, I may have the happiness-through the mediation of Your holy Mother and St. Joseph, Your foster father-to live all the rest of my life in You, for You, and under the direction of Your divine Spirit. AMEN.
This year, try to make Christmas about Christ. It's not about all of the fuss of shopping for gifts, and going to parties, and traveling to family. It is about Christ. It's not just some birthday party for Jesus either. It's celebrating much more. Namely that the Word became Flesh. God became man. (Although Jesus is 100% God and also 100% man--- something we can't understand) This event in history changed the entire course of history. Millions and billions of lives have been changed because of Jesus. Then, we also recall the summit of Jesus' time on earth--- His death on the cross. He was born to die. But He conquered death so that we may have life! Praise Jesus this Christmas and worship HIM. Give thanks to the Savior of the World!
