“Blessed are you…” – We have taken this promise from the Gospel to heart this year. We were able to experience that wherever we share our lives with one another and where we commit ourselves to the poor and troubled in our surroundings, a piece of heaven already becomes tangible. One could also say that whenever we have this experience, we are experiencing a „Christmas“: heaven and earth are coming together. God became human in Jesus so that we can understand our own humanity more deeply. In all the worries and hardships that do not stop at ourselves, we are invited to reach out to heaven and be messengers of hope. Let us take the experience of this year with us into the new year. I am sure: Then we will all – you and I – be a blessing. The world needs this promise: “Blessed are you…”
Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones!
