My dear brothers and sisters, as we celebrate Christmas this year, we see lights of the festive season in the streets of Port-Louis, Antananarivo and Victoria and also in shops and homes. Trees around us reflect sunlight during the day and at night they glitter with decorating lights, especially Christmas trees in our houses. We have started preparing a menu for Christmas meal, which will be a real feast. Music in our cars, shops, streets and homes is very festive and, of course, we have been doing our shopping to buy Christmas gifts. In short, at this season, this is what is expected of each one of us. It is Christmas. Christmas cannot exist without lights and tree, Christmas cannot exist without meal, Christmas cannot exist without music, Christmas cannot exist without gifts. But are we all comfortable celebrating Christmas? Do we know why we celebrate Christmas? Do we know who we celebrate at Christmas? Is there something missing or someone missing in our celebration? What is Christmas? Jesus was not a genius as a child; he did not become a great General in the army or an admiral in the navy. He was neither an international politician nor was he a great traveller visiting the main centres-Rome, Alexandrea, Athens. He was not a famous author. He does not persuade the rich and powerful to back Him in His mission and eventually he dies a criminal death on the Roman Cross. He leaves a small broken band of followers who abandon him to his fate. Many would think if he were an ordinary man that this would have been the end of it with his execution. History teaches the world that in some centuries after his death, this band of men and women had turned know and civilise world upside down. But why then have we remember his birth in Israel, in the Roman Empire during all these centuries. My dearly beloved, key to appreciating why we really celebrate Christmas is the fact that God, our Father, in His great love, sent His Son Jesus to come to Earth, to live as one of us. He was crucify but he did not remain in tomb. Jesus rose from the dead and will never die again. He is alive today and forever Alleluia! And this no one has ever done before and even today. Christmas will only have real meaning if we realise that the baby in the stable is Jesus, Son Of God who was raised from the dead. Christmas will only have real meaning if we realise that Jesus came to Earth to enable Man and woman to come into a new relationship with God. Christmas will only have real meaning if we actually come into living relationship with Jesus himself-crucify one whom God raised from the dead.
