Although it doesn’t sit well with us to hear that there was no room at the Inn for Mary and Joseph and the almost born Jesus, it is actually a great thing when we can say that there is no room left in the church because it so full of joyful people celebrating the Birth of Jesus! I am thinking today of the joyful response Mary and Joseph gave to the visitors who came to visit the Newborn King. I am sure they thought and said: “He is their King, they have the right to approach Him.” They knew what we try to learn: Jesus came to save everyone. How can we be less than joyful when everyone comes to see Him?!? Welcome home! Thanks for making room and making your church crowded.
With my prayers,
Fr Matthew Zuberbueler Pastor
