A Christmas Message

from Bishop Miller

“The Light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it.

Dear Friends in Christ,
My favorite Mass of the three Christ Masses for the feast of the Incarnation is the Mass on Christmas Day. (Like Easter, Christmas has three Eucharistic Propers from the ancient custom that priest were allowed to celebrate three masses on this day, rather than just one.) One of my earliest memories in worship was a Christmas Day service in my Grandpa and Grandma Miller’s church. It was the first time I had ever seen a church so richly decorated with torches and garlands on each pew.
As I get older, I find I am most feed by the quiet simplicity of a service on Christmas Day and the more reflective nature of the lessons appointed. Instead of the birth narrative from Luke, the Gospel for this third mass is the prologue from John’s Gospel, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God….” a Johannine echo of the creation story from Genesis written in the light of the Christ event, that is Jesus incarnation, death, resurrection, and ascension.
The verse that speaks to me most deeply is verse 5, “The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it.” I cling to that verse most especially this year. I cling to the confidence and the assurance it offers of God’s reign in a year that seems more violent that any before.
