"This is the great mystery of Christmas
that continues to give us comfort and consolation:
we are not alone on our journey.
The God of love who gave us life
sent his only Son to be with us at all times and in all places,
so that we never have to feel lost in our struggles
but always can trust that He walks with us.
Christmas is the renewed invitation
not to be afraid and to let Him-
whose love is greater than our own hearts and minds can comprehend-
be our companion."
