EVEN YOU CAN TAKE THE CHRISTMAS BOX!

EVEN YOU CAN TAKE THE CHRISTMAS BOX!

"The poor walk naked, with no clothes and drained with hunger…" (Iov 24, 10)
It is time, already, for us to get prepared for the Birth of the Son of God. The prayer in family must be a moment when a place is made for the Guest that is to visit our homes. The Guest that we celebrate during the Fast and for Christmas is Jesus, the One who is expected to come, as our God promissed, but, at the same time, we shall find that there are also other guests that are waiting for us to invite them to join us eat with us. At the same time, to the prayer, fast and vigil, material and spiritual charity is also to be added. The attention of our community, this year, will be oriented towards the poor. The poor are the first who are waited to attend the Feast of God and we understand this when we listen to the words of Jesus. Having a poor at our table seems to be an experience that is almost impossible nowadays, and having nothing to do with the reality we live in and yet, this cannot justify the fact that this is the Invitation of Jesus: only brothers gather around the same table sharing the bread. We cannot believe that „brothers” is just a term, a word, a way of speaking.For the one who has chosen to follow Jesus and to be called a Christian, this term carries within itself the mistery of an universal communion that animates the hearts of people from all over the world.
The Holly Father remembers us that the Year of Faith, that has just begun, is also a good opportunity for the intensifying of the witnessing the charity, appreciating that there were not few the christians that dedicate their lives with love to the one who is alone, avoided or secluded, as being the first we must visit and the most important to be supported, as he reflects the image of Christ Himself.
During this year we should ask ourselves who are these poor, this brothers of God, and we should ask ourselves if they are really so diffrent from us. Maybe nowadays the poor is not only the one who has no food or a blanket, but also a familly in difficulty, an ill person or an elder, an orphan. It will be important for us to learn, during this time of fast and prayer, to do an exercise of poverty: to learn how to give up the idea of having something that seems good, but that is not very necessary. To give up with a purpose, to give up out of love, to offer to the one who has more serious needs than we do.
Take one of the Christmas Boxes and put inside your gift, as an expression of your giving up, and help those in difficulty. Caritas Eparhial Oradea will direct your offer where it is most needed.
