Oh Mary, Joseph and Shepherds, Birth of Jesus was good news for you all. 

Because you all had to pay a cost To experience a bright future for your community. 

Oh Herod and your ruling party,, Birth of Jesus was a bad news for you all. 

Because you all knew that it would cost you To experience loss and emptiness. 

Oh Wise-men, Birth of Jesus was an opportunity which made you to Go through the experience of conversion. 

Because you all opt to see baby Jesus In the cattle shed of the oppressors first and This brought suffering and death to innocent babies and Made Holy Family to become refugees. 

So what brings ‘Birth of Jesus’ to us in 2019? 

If we are on the side of Mary, Joseph and Shepherds There would be certainty, joy and hope. 

If we are on the side of Herod, and oppressive rulers We have unhappiness and despair. 

If we follow the Wise-men, We will have joy and hope Even in the midst of innocent suffering, death And persecution. 

Who we are?

Where are we?
