The Shepherds and the 3 Wise Men Christmas 2017

Consider the Humble Sacrifice that the Shepherds and the 3 Wise Men made in their long journey to adore the Christ Child.

Only the Humble Shepherds and the Wise Astrologers followed the Star to Bethlehem.

He was the King of Kings much greater than they were. No Journey was too long because any trouble they had was infinitely worth the sacrifice.

When they saw, the Christ Child, they bowed down before him. Where was Everybody ?? Who could understand then that the Babe wrapped in swaddling clothes was the Hidden Incarnate Word of God -- The Man God made of Real Flesh and Real Blood.

He came quietly and lovingly. Only the Humble and the Wise could see the Humble Jesus Christ lying in a Manger.

The Rest of the World was extremely indifferent about the Birth of Jesus Christ amidst humble surroundings.

Look at how God has never stopped honouring the Shepherds and the 3 Wise Men for honouring His Son in Bethlehem.

The Humble Sacrifice of their long journey is praised in Sacred Scripture.

In the Blessed Sacrament, Jesus Christ comes to us even more humbly than He did before. His Real Presence in the Holy Eucharist is an "Awesome Wonder".

Let us never forsake Jesus Christ specially on Christmas Day.
