Weekly Photo Challenge: Joy (on the 4th Day of Christmas)

On the Fourth Day of Christmas

Christmas is a celebration of Joy/Emmanuel/God with Us. Joy living among us. And so, as on all the days of Christmas, we celebrate the Coming of Joy into our lives.

It is good and joyful to live on this earth!

It is good and joyful to live on this earth!

Henceforth humanity has the right to know that it is good to be human, good to live on this earth, good to have a body, because God in Jesus chose and said “yes” to our humanity. Or as we Franciscans love to say, “incarnation is already Redemption.” The problem is solved. Now go and utterly enjoy all remaining days. Not only is it “Always Advent,” but every day can now be Christmas because the one we thought we were just waiting for has come once and for all.

– Richrd Rohr, OFM, from Preparing for Christmas
