Examin Sunday 9 Jan 2016

The twelve days of Christmas begin with the birth of our Lord and the visit of the angels to the shepherds. They end with the coming of the Magi to visit the Christ-child having followed a star from a far-away land. The first visit reminds us that the Messiah came for all people, including the poor and lowly of the world; the second that he came just as much for the stranger, the 'outsider,' as for those who think of themselves as being at the centre of any group or society.Therefore in our comfort we must be constantly vigilant to be sure we are welcoming to the poor, the vulnerable, the stranger; for Christ called them to him, just as he calls us.
