When we hear the Good News of Christmas, we get to choose how we respond. We can respond as Herod the King with rage because we don’t want to give up our comforts and material way of life. We can choose to embrace the Good News as freedom from the anxiety and pressures of the worldly life or we can stand up and fight against the truth of the Church, as the crowd stood up and stoned Saint Stephen. King Herod had the chance to see the joy and freedom of the Good News of Christ’s Birth, but he couldn’t even see Christ as the coming freedom from Rome. How will you respond to the Good News of Christmas this year? Will you respond like Herod and the crowd, or sing God’s praises as the Angels? Christ is born; Glorify Him; you have been set free!
