Gospel: Lk. 1: 26-38
"You are to conceive and bear a son, and you must name him Jesus. He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High."
If we really know who is to come, someone higher than our worries and preoccupations this Christmas, someone who will change our lives forever, someone who can change the course of our country's history, the time that we spend in going to malls and buying gifts should change into something much more intense, more lasting, more for our children and the future. Christ is the gift!
