Peace on Earth - Can it Be? (Lk 2:1-14) (1 Ch Mass at Night)

December 25, 2019

One Christmas a few years back I work up to a song by David Bowie and Bing Crosby; The Little Drummer Boy. In their version, there was a haunting refrain; "Peace on Earth, Can it Be?"  I the Gospel, we hear that the Angels from Heaven declare Peace on Earth at the Birth of Jesus Christ and Lord.  This child is to bring Peace.  Can it Be? Have we experienced World Peace yet? There was a time during WWI when opposing sides made peace on Christmas Day, and at least for awhile, peace on earth seemed possible?  If we are to have peace for the many, it is first required that it be lived boldly by a few.  We may not bring about world peace in our day, but we can with God's help bring peace to our world. It is God's plan. It is our deepest desire. It is a choice. Let us pray that I may bring the light of Christ and Peace of Christ to those in my world. Merry Christmas - Old English for "Christ's Mass".
