Thought For The Week

'As children we had a sense of wonder. Our eyes were wide open and drinking in the fascinating gifts we beheld. Our thirsty souls could not have enough of the wonders of creation. Then somehow we got too old to dream. We let wonder go to sleep.' ~Alfred McBride

It is well known that as we get older we get wiser, more street wise, cuter and better able to adapt to the complexities of life. If you pick up a stone from any part of a sea shore, it is always smooth and round. It has no sharp edges. The constant motion of water, waves and other stones have smoothened out all the sharp edges over time. The same goes with us too. Life smoothens out all our rough edges over time.

But it also comes with a price too. We tend to lose our sense of wonder, our excitement for life and our unique dream of something special we'd like to happen. The call of the Gospel stories is to hold our sense of wonder, to have energy for life and to keep dreaming and hoping for everything that is good. Finding this balance is a lifelong challenge.

During our School Mass for the Epiphany (Jan 6th), one of our Religion Teachers, Jacinta O'Connor was giving her thoughts on the New Year to our students. She told them that if Plan A doesn't work out for you going forward, don't worry or panic because there are 25 other plans still left from B-Z.

We all know that Plan A's can often fall short. Sometimes we forget about all the other options still open to us. Having some spiritual connection in a loving God can often help us see the bigger picture. As we journey along this New Year, the invitation is there to make more spiritual connections. It doesn't have to be big or spectacular but all the little spiritual connections do add up to something significant and important.

'I am not alone as I thought I was. I am never alone at all. And that of course is the message of Christmas. We are never alone. Not when the night is darkest, the wind coldest, the world seemingly most indifferent. For this is still the time God chooses.' ~Taylor Caldwell

We have all experienced those dark nights, the cold winds and a world that seems far removed from our own personal story. It is easy to feel alone, down hearted and struggling. Christmas though reminds us that we are not on our own. God is very much on our side and with us every step of the way. God chooses to be a part of our lives when we least expect it.

Christmas reminds us that the God we celebrate and follow is a God of love. This has incredible and powerful implications even when we don't fully understand them. God as love means we have a reason to keep going, we are encouraged and we have a sense of hope to keep walking the journey. Those who came to the first crib were made welcome. The same goes with us this Christmas. No matter what our story, background or situation, we are all welcome at God's crib. There are no barriers and no exceptions. Everyone is welcome and we are never alone. Wishing you a happy, holy and peaceful Christmas. Wishing you God's many blessings throughout 2020
