Full circle

It’s hard to believe that Christmas Day was more than a month ago.  I enjoyed celebrating the entire season, and attended daily Mass on the last Friday before entering Ordinary Time.  It was beautiful, and I savored my last glimpses of the beautiful Nativity set and all of the decor.

Arriving early to Mass, I had time to reflect on what I saw before me.  Regretfully, I didn’t have my camera, but I did have my phone, and took a photograph to share.

There I saw the story of salvation concretely before me:  God Incarnate, lying in the manger.  Behind was the crucifix, with Jesus our God and Savior dying for our sins.  And soon, there were the priests celebrating the Liturgy of the Eucharist, bringing God’s gift of Himself to us right then and there.
