God is visiting mankind

ADVENT LANTERN (daily meditations)

December 24. The thoughts of Archbishop Dr. Kovács Gergely

In many cases we are so busy with our own things that we forget what the most important is. This is how we deal with our values, our feasts. “Christmas is the feast of love”, we say and repeat this sentence out of routine. Every minute of our day is filled with something “important”: cleaning, buying presents… We forget the most important thing: that the rising Sun comes and visits us from heaven: God is visiting mankind. God liberates people, sends a liberator, God is merciful. That is the centre, the essence of Christmas, the feast of the birth of Jesus. this was, this is the essence forever.
