Christmas away from home!  

Posted by Heisan

I'll be spending my Christmas away from my family a sacrifice and at the same time a challenge for me as a Christian in keeping my faith in our Lord and Savior in these land of a different faith - the followers of the Prophet Mohammed. A sacrifice in the sense that it is difficult to be away from your family in the celebration of the event of the coming of God in the history of man but I offer and join my loneliness and homesickness to the one sacrifice of our Lord in the Eucharist and that is my cause of joy. A joy that the world could not understand nor comprehend that I will branded as followers of a religion of losers as the secularist and the humanist calls the Christian religion, but this faith in the Lord gives inner peace amidst turmoil and chaos, inner joy amidst loneliness and longing to be home, and hope that Christ comes to give me life and have that life in abundance. A life of continual journey with him, a life of constant communion with Him and his Church amidst indifference and a life of constant celebration and liturgy untill I return to the real home in heaven with Christ and with my fellow believers. Merry Christmas!!!

Merry Christmas Heisan! Being away from family is a great sacrifice. You and your family are in my prayers. See you in the Eucharist, in which we are all united. I will remember you when I receive Our Lord in Holy Communion this Christmas.
