Awaiting The Christ Child

[Edit] We are awaiting the birth of Baby Jesus in Bethlehem in a manger. The Word made Flesh Who saves us from sin. What would it be like to approach the Child Jesus lying in the manger and bring Him into your arms and kiss Him? He would gaze at you with His pure and innocent infant eyes with so much love that you would never want to part with Him again. But soon you would have to place Him back in His Crib, with the hope that someday you will join Him again in Heaven, this time never to be parted from Him again. He is and will always be our Joy and our Peace. Let us be ready to kiss the Christchild when He comes on Christmas. Rejoice! The Savior is near!

Why does the Pope kiss babies? The same reason why we are all inclined to kiss babies, because they bring joy and peace to the human heart and because he loves them. It is also to bless them and to testify to the world that children are gifts from God. Jesus said, "Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them" (Matthew 19:14). We must always bring our children to the Lord and we also must be like little children. Let us prepare for Him, the King Who is to come!
