Franciscan Crown: The Nativity of Jesus

This decade we turn the focus on the birth of Jesus once again we are following the order of the Joyful Mysteries but that will change soon enough. The Birth of Jesus is an important part of Mary’s life and our lives as well. We look at the birth of God here on earth as the ultimate sacrifice for all mankind. This event brings together the sacred and the common since God became man and links us together through Mary. It is a second creation story made whole by the events of Easter. This event has become such a secular occasion over the years, let us remind ourselves of the religious elements of Christmas. I hope that we can keep this in mind as we look toward the second coming.
