Commentary on the Gospel of

Sid Ching, cmf


As we greet each other “Merry Christmas” and exchange gifts, we often forget whose birthday it is we celebrate. Have we ever wondered why we give and receive gifts on this day when today is neither our birthday nor theirs? The next time you greet someone a “Merry Christmas” or give a Christmas gift, remember the “Christ” in Christmas, and say to that Baby born in Bethlehem two thousand and twelve years ago, “Happy birthday, Jesus.”
