“The Word was made flesh, and lived among us” (Jh1:14)
Not too long ago, Catholics would genuflect when they said this phrase. it was the complete articulation of the Christian message that we celebrate every Christmas. In our still-fragile new experience of post-pandemic living, we are reminded that God incarnate … Immanuel … is in every part of our new reality with us. Over these few days, through a mixture of Input, Personal Reflection time and Ritual, we gently open ourselves up to the ever-loving and guiding presence of God-with-us in our lives and in our world.
