God became man, for man to become god (by grace)
God came down to earth to raise man to heavens.

The birth of Christ is a celebration of the reconciliation between God and man. With the birth of Christ, the community between humanity and God was re-established. When man sinned, he ontologically tore the communion, because there is nothing in common between light and darkness, and in God there is nothing unclean.

Only God has the power to reconnect the community with the fallen in sin, humanity. God was the first one to humble himself and was born in a dark cave, so he can illuminate us all with the light of His birth. The reconciliation is an act of two sides in communion, God is love and He is always ready to forgive us, but if it comes to reconciliation, it depends on us.

Most deserving of our salvation and reconciliation with God is the Most-Holy, Most Blessed and Indispensable, ever Virgin Mary, who first said “yes” to God and through her womb we settle in peace again and we can hope for salvation and eternal life in the kingdom of God .

But also we ought to love God and our neighbor and always to forgive. Do not ever let the satan stand between us and to take away the light of love and joy of God. We need to reject every sinful thought and to give space for God to always be among us and in us. Because if we do not forgive, then God wont forgive us and we will stay in the dark and for us Christ will not be born. And how then can we celebrate the birth of Christ, if Christ was not born (for us)?

Let the Divine-infant Christ, during these holy days, illuminate the darkness in our hearts and enlighten us with the joy of his birth, so we may love Him with our whole heart and all His humanity and together with the shepherds and angels to sing: “Glory to God in heavens, and peace among people, on earth good will! ”
