Dec 16 – Homily – Fr Maximilian W: A Christmas Gift for Jesus
Homily #141216n ( 04min) Play - Father comments on the themes of today's liturgy, which speaks of the purification needed before we can make a gift of ourselves when Our Lord comes. Our Lord tells us who it is that makes this gift of themselves, it is not the ones who say they will and have, but those who actually do turn around, purify themselves (especially through the Sacrament of Penance), and do it. Let us turn around, walk the new way of life in Christ, and actually make ourselves the Christmas gift for Jesus.
