I believe this is a time for being responsible. This year we have the opportunity to break the cycle of commercialism and remember what Christmas is actually about.
For some people Christmas has become a time of extravagance. I’d like to think that with the troubles faced by many in the world in 2020, that it can become a time of looking out for others again.
This year has had such a devastating effect on people throughout the world. Today’s Gospel urges us to reach out and help in any way we can, even if we are stuck at home.
