Christmas is one of the biggest feasts. I am a Catholic and on this day I celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. God the Father sent His Son to earth so that Jesus Christ - the second Person of the Trinity - would save people. Jesus on earth did the will of His Father and died on the cross giving us salvation; Jesus reconciled us with God the Father.
The life and words of Jesus Christ in the Gospel are a great gift to us humans. If we believe in God in the Trinity and in Jesus our Redeemer, this faith empowers us to follow Jesus, to listen to Him and to live according to His teachings.
Today I would like to share some quotes from the book written by Thomas A Kempis; the title of this book is "Imitation of Christ". Several of the cautions are from Book One.
Jesus said: "I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. The bread that I will give is my body, given for the life of the world."
Personally, I think that one of the most obvious evidences for the existence of God is the existence of man and nature. In my opinion, SOMEONE had to give a beginning to the universe, nature and man. Nothing happens by itself. As the Holy Scriptures says "From the beauty of the creatures one recognizes the Creator"
