Den är en speciell dag för oss som är kristna. Vi firar vår Herre Jesus Kristus som är hela universums konung. När vi hör ordet ?Kung?, tänker vi på världens kungar eller politiska ledare.

    ?O come, let us adore him!? My beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, the hymn, Adeste Fideles, which has been translated into many languages captures both the mood and the meaning of the feast we celebrate.

On the whole, the hymn, like the readings, is an invitation to rejoice because the Saviour of the world is born of the Virgin in Bethlehem. Yes, Jesus the Lord is the...

  • DOMUS JESU: A Homily for the Feast of the Holy Family (C)

    The family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph is the model of all families. For those who are Christians, we know that it is the presence of Christ among us that makes our families to be Christian families. In the First Reading, we hear the moving story of the demonstration of faith and faithfulness. Most of us are conversant with the story of the family of Elkanah and Hannah, the parents of Samuel. The fidelity of Elkanah to the annual sacrifice in fulfilment of his vow at the Sanctuary at Shiloh is praise worthy....
