The Magi “opened their treasures and offered the baby Jesus gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.” The Magi brought their best.
Christmas is about “gift,” but not “gift” as we commonly think. A great deal of time and energy is spent on gift giving. However, when God wanted to give us His most important gift, He did so in a Bethlehem stable. And while the Magi made precious and expensive offerings, the object of their adoration was an innocent baby lying in a manger. Let us offer ourselves to the Son of God, putting aside selfishness and offering our love of God and neighbor. I join my fellow Catholics in extending to you our prayers for a joyful Christmas!
