The Christmas season is here, and it is a perfect time to remember the meaning behind the holiday. With all of the frustrations and bad news for liberty-loving Americans in the headlines, this story is meant to remind readers that nothing can cancel Christmas. Christmas is in the hearts and Christians’ actions of those who are continuing to carry the gospel to others.
Christmas is about life. It is about the life of a baby, and a Mother and a Family. The Bible tells us where to look for inspiration; it is with the Baby.
“This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Luke 2:12
A heartfelt story from Life Site news points to the dedication of a Christian in Brazile.
In her article, Baby Jesus community cares for ‘miracle’ babies who survived abortions, Claire Chretien writes:
“This is the message of the Catholic Community of the Child Jesus: it is to embrace life, to acknowledge life, to respect life throughout its development: from conception until natural death,” Tavares told LifeSiteNews in an exclusive interview. “Life, at the present time, must continue to be defended: always, always, always.”
Tavares explained that his community has suffered from the coronavirus outbreak in the loss of one of his adopted sons. Not being able to be with him as he died, “one of the strongest griefs I have had as a father.”
“The coronavirus crisis has brought pain to the whole world, and not only financial pain, but also physical and psychological pain, and religious pain because people could not go to religious services or Mass,” Tavares said.
Tavares relies on “the providence of God” to obtain donations that pay for his children’s expensive medical care as well as their day-to-day needs like milk and food.
The Baby Jesus community is a witness to the value and inherent dignity of every human being in a world that increasingly sees disabled children as disposable or unwanted – and on a continent that is facing a push to radicalize its abortion laws.
Relying on the “Providence of God”, is something Christians know about.
No one can cancel Christmas when the body of Christ keeps the message alive. And it is alive in one man in his “Baby Jesus Community.” The story begs the question if this man can dedicate his life to unwanted children, out of respect for life, what can we dedicate our lives to?
Have we relied on the “Providence of God” this year?
The importance of remembering baby Jesus:
CHRISTMAS is still about LOVE, even when the world is strange.
And as long as we remember the birth of Baby Jesus, there is hope for the future.
Even in the face of lockdowns and civil disputes and arguments over politics, this is still the best time of the year to remember that liberty started with the birth of a baby, and liberty was sought after by the people who followed the star of Bethlehem to discover him. The story is so simple, and it is still ours for the taking.
Don’t miss your chance to remember. Today is a good day to remember. Today is the perfect day to remember.
