EVEN YOU CAN TAKE THE CHRISTMAS BOX!

EVEN YOU CAN TAKE THE CHRISTMAS BOX!

When you have more, give more, if you have less, give less, but do not hesitate to do charity. Give your bread to the hungry and your cloth to the naked. Of all the things you have in abundance, do mercy, and to not regret your eye when you do charity! Book of Tobit 4, 8 and 16
To Advent and pray it can be added mercy or bodily and spiritual charity.
This virtue has a double value first of all we give something from us, willingly and on the other hand giving to someone in need, fulfilling a Christian love.
So, when we give up on something to offering it to Jesus in the person deprived or suffering, Jesus wouldn’t forget and forget a smaller or bigger part from the debt of our sins, proportional with the love we offer.
We are in Advent and that’s why we have to understand its spirit.
All of us know that this period is a time for preparing for Christmas. That’s why, long time before we start preparing our souls, clearing our conscience, purifying our spirit and trying to receive His coming: beautiful and clean. So as Jesus have been given birth from Virgin Mary, so the Christmas should be celebrated by pure and clean-soul people. Anybody, in that day, whom will be tainted by sin, proves that is not interested in Jesus Birth and not takes into consideration his desire to enter the soul of each of us.
Therefore, approaching us to Christmas, let us purify by the ugliness of the sin and fill our souls with different charity actions.
What will say if in one house, between the servants of the same master, one is conceit, dressed up in fancy clothes, and the other suffers and can barely have rags; that one gorge with food and other dies of hunger and cold? How efficient will our pray be? How can we ask for being released from sin and not to help out our brother’s?
We are imitators of God. If He wanted the poor’s tot take part with us at the Grace of Heaven, why should they be partakers at the land assets? Let us not be strangers in the material if we are brothers in the Holy Mysteries. Only as we succeed together, everyone, to receive Jesus in the manger of our soul.
Take the Christmas box and put in your gift, an expression of you giving, and help a family who are in difficulty. Caritas Eparhial Oradea will direct your help where most needed.
This Advent should not be a post of pain, bitterness and sadness, but a post of joy and giving, by waiver, because the Child Jesus will come and bring salvation to every one of us, Amen.
Priest Olimpiu Todorean
