noel new year wallpaper4Nowa­days this ques­tion is in all people’s heart, not only the lit­tle ones» but also the older ones», and it looks for an answer… Every­one has his/​her own perspective.

Great effort is being put on cel­e­brat­ing these days with glory! Even the dark­est cor­ner has been filled, or should we say flooded with Christ­mas orna­ments and decorations.…

As I’m walk­ing in one of the busiest streets in town, while glanc­ing at the fes­tively dec­o­rated depart­ment stores and hear­ing the Christ­mas songs at full blast, I real­ize that all these are just a shiny wrap­ping. Every­body want to feast, to have the cel­e­bra­tion of their life! How­ever, the cruel real­ity shakes our mind out of the well designed fairy­tale. A lit­tle fur­ther, some young­sters with blurry eyes are try­ing hard to bal­ance them­selves, to take one step… an old man is beg­ging for some bread…the bomb­ings and the human mis­ery are on every TV screen…and the peo­ple are pass­ing by.…everyone iso­lated… every­one includ­ing me, the ques­tion still in my mind:

Where is Christ going be born this year?

Will we cel­e­brate Christ­mas this year?

I hear a famil­iar voice in my head: «I don’t want Christ­mas to come! Christ­mas is a feast of joy and I’m so unhappy, I have too many prob­lems». The whole world is full of prob­lems, dead-​ends, pain, mis­ery, death… Peace is absent both out­side and inside… Even so, You, my Lord, are still search­ing for a suit­able lodging…in our poor earth!

«Smarten the manger» prompts us the (religious/​ecclesiastical/​church) hymn… it calls for every person…for me! Yes, I do, I really want to let the uncon­tain­able God to be born in my and all people’s heart which craves forν hap­pi­ness, peace and love…«Smarten the manger»! But how? «In purity let’s brighten our­selves, let us shim­mer by means of our virtues», that’s the path, that’s the way indi­cated by our Ortho­dox Church… It’s up to us to cross it, as long as we can! Well, there is enough time to «pre­pare with fear and joy» and yes, we can cel­e­brate this year too a MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Ο καθένας μας, όσο μικρός κι αν είναι, είναι μεγάλος για τον αιώνιο Θεό.
