At Christmas, we see Jesus as a
little babe— helpless and poor.
And He came to love and be loved.
How can we love Jesus in the world today?
By loving Him in
my husband, my wife, my children
my brothers and sisters, my parents,
my neighbours and the poor.
Let us gather around the poor crib in Bethlehem
and make a strong resolution that
we will love Jesus in all those we meet every day.
