For me, the message of Christmas this year is simplicity. Christ in the manger reveals great simplicity.
St. Padre Pio wrote this, "Jesus said, ' Unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.' But, before He taught us this by His words, he had already put it into practice. He became a Child and gave us the example of that simplicity He was to teach us later also by His words...We must try to keep our thoughts pure, our ideas upright and honest, and our intentions holy."
