without being truly poor.
those who, because they have everything,
look down on others,
those who have no need even of Godde —
for them there will be no Christmas.
Only the poor,
those who need someone to come on their behalf,
will have that someone.
That someone is Godde,
Without poverty of spirit
there can be no abundance of Godde.
When the poor have nowhere to rest their bodies,
and their children fleeing from the cold
find only hammocks
strung up in the fields and coffee groves,
we must recall that the Savior’s good news is for all.
The happiness of the Lord who created us
to fulfill his salvation is everyone’s.
