I don’t know, for whom it is easier to celebrate it? For the parents endowed with the grace of parenthood, who can celebrate with their children their feast, and to discover child-like joy within themselves, too?
Or for the adults who don’t have kids of their own? They can always count on their loving Mums to call them – bacuse for her you’ll always be a child?
Or for those, who find new joy each time they say “Our Father” prayer, because they discover: “God loves me as His most precious child”?
Today, since I’ve become a Father by choice and vocation, I pray for all of you to the One who is the source of all perenthood, and I want to ensure each of you that you are the apple of His eye – of the One who called us all into being.
It was Him who whispered our names most tenderly – and we were conceived.
You are so much loved!
