Only through the poor man's heart
In this very Christmas, Isaiah reiterates the role of the Son of David. God promised David that his kingdom will not end and that His Son will correct all errors and make us all happy!
Isaiah added in the reading this night, "His name is Wonder Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace." All these titles attributed to Jesus, the Son of David, shall be used to put an end to sin and cause our salvation.
We are called to give witness to these titles of Jesus so he will be born in us.
As a Wonder Counselor, our role now becomes to help others, enlighten their minds, and lead them to the right track.
As Mighty God, He calls us to be single-hearted and love, serve, and adore Him and Him alone!
As Eternal Father, He calls us rely fully on Him as we do our fathers, with the assurance of a true father!
And as Prince of Peace, he calls to a life in total union with one another and with Him, causing this entire earth to live in peace and plenty.
But before we can accept all these, let us hearts be like the hearts of the shepherds, the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Joseph.
Only through the heart of a poor man can we be born. Then we would fully realize that Christmas is not just about the birth of Jesus. It also marks our birth in God!
