The message that we find in today's video is clear enough: Christmas is about Jesus. Amongst all the gifts, the wrappings, the fruitcakes, the visits to Santa Clause, and everything else, don't forget what's most important: Jesus.

LOS ANGELES, CA. (Catholic Online) - As such, find time to prayer, to be recollected, to remember and perceive that God continues to be with you today, in this very moment.

Then, find ways to encourage those around you do the same.

Remind them to be silent and listen to God by the way you are listen and care for what's going on in their lives.

Remind them to be thankful by your joy for all the blessings you have received. Remind them to be love by your acts of friendship and generosity. 

This year, let the phrase "Merry Christmas" be more than a simple greeting. Let it be a concrete goal for which we strive. Let us go and bring the transforming joy of Christ out into the world and into the lives of all those around us.
