P.Humphreys

Coming back the other day from Hunter’s Lane, Dublin Airport was getting itself all decked up for Christmas. Lots of lights, ‘Happy Christmas’ signs in many different languages, not to mention a huge fir tree all bedecked and ready to go. It made me smile.

But I think, if I venture into town, I shall be overwhelmed with all the efforts to encourage me to spend more and more on most things that I truly don’t need. Now I am not going to be miserable, we all make our own decisions about what to do over Christmas. We all know how bad things are for those with little, in our own cities, never mind the rest of the world. We also know that simple things can help too by our helping out the foodbanks in Liverpool and Dublin, maybe using charity Christmas card and getting gifts from charity shops. Everyone gains something then.

But an important thing we can gain is perhaps meet friends or family that we often don’t get chance to. As you know, Irish people are scattered all over the globe, including Liverpool. The Airport right up the last flight on Christmas Eve, will be bursting with families gathered with banners and streamers and hand-made posters for their brothers, sisters, sons and daughters coming home for Christmas or New Year from Canada, the USA, Australia, New Zealand, practically everywhere, often with babies or young ones who will be meeting their bigger families for the first time. That is really great, with tears of joy replacing the ‘missing you’ tears in the rest of the year. It is very hard to express what a wonderful atmosphere there is at that time. I’ve been there.

When Jesus was born, Mary and Joseph showered Him with Love. Shepherds came to see Him and mysterious men from the East came too, with exotic gifts His family had never seen, never mind had before. His parents had travelled too, with some uncertainty and I am sure some worry as to what the future would bring. But just as a bright star brought light in the dark sky, so they, with their visitors, were witnessing the most important event this world had ever known. The love they shared could not be bought and never would it fade. Instead, it is the Light that guides us all, that have eyes to see, hearts and minds to feel the joy that only our Saviour can bring. In whichever way Christmas and New Year find you, may you be blessed by the unending love of a small baby, surrounded by His parents, stall animals, poor shepherds and the rich kings. A baby that would change the world for ever, bringing lightness never darkness. May you be blessed these coming days, as always, by the love of God, the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and never-ending blessing of His Son, Jesus Christ, Our Lord.

Happy Christmas and New Year,

Peter
