As you well know, we are getting closer to my birthday. Every year
there is a celebration in my honor and I think that this year the
celebration will be repeated.
During this time there are many people shopping for gifts, there are
many radio announcements, TV commercials, and in every part of the
world everyone is talking that my birthday is getting closer and
closer. It is really very nice to know, that at least once a year,
some people think of me. As you know, the celebration of my birthday
began many years ago. At first people seemed to understand and be
thankful of all that I did for them, but in these times, no one seems
to know the reason for the celebration. Family and friends get
together and have a lot of fun, but they don't know the meaning of
the celebration. I remember that last year there was a great feast in
my honor. The dinner table was full of delicious foods, pastries,
fruits, assorted nuts and chocolates. The decorations were exquisite
and there were many, many beautifully wrapped gifts.
But, do you want to know something? I wasn't invited.
I was the guest of honor and they didn't remember to send me an
invitation. The party was for me, but when that great day came, I was
left outside, they closed the door in my face .. and I wanted to be
with them and share their table. In truth, that didn't surprise me
because in the last few years all close their doors to me. Since I
wasn't invited, I decided to enter the party without making any
noise. I went in and stood in a corner. They were all drinking; there
were some who were drunk and telling jokes and laughing at
everything. They were having a grand time.
To top it all, this big fat man all dressed in red wearing a long
white beard entered the room yelling Ho-Ho-Ho! He seemed drunk. He
sat on the sofa and all the children ran to him, saying: "Santa
Claus, Santa Claus"as if the party were in his honor!
At midnight all the people began to hug each other; I extended my
arms waiting for someone to hug me and do you know no-one hugged me.
Suddenly they all began to share gifts. They opened them one by one
with great expectation. When all had been opened, I looked to see if,
maybe, there was one for me. What would you feel if on your birthday
everybody shared gifts and you did not get one?
I then understood that I was unwanted at that party and quietly left.
Every year it gets worse. People only remember the gifts, the
parties, to eat and drink, and nobody remembers me. I would like this
Christmas that you allow me to enter into your life. I would like
that you recognize the fact that almost two thousand years ago I came
to this world to give my life for you, on the cross, to save you.
Today, I only want that you believe this with all your heart. I want
to share something with you. As many didn't invite me to their party,
I will have my own celebration, a grandiose party that no one has
ever imagined, a spectacular party. I'm still making the final
Today I am sending out many invitations and there is an invitation
for you. I want to know if you wish to attend and I will make a
reservation for you and write your name with golden letters in my
great guest book. Only those on the guest list will be invited to the
party. Those who don't answer the invite, will be left outside. Be
prepared because when all is ready you will be part of my great party.
See you soon. I Love you!
