Luke 19:45-48

Well, the craziness is underway. Black Friday now because of greed has begun on Thanksgiving Day and people support this craziness. In the context of today’s Gospel, we can hear Jesus speaking to us: My coming at Christmas is a time for your spirits to rejoice and celebrate my presence in your midst. Don’t let commercialism steal this time away from you; don’t let materialism become the center of this holy season.
