WHAT’S IN YOUR MANGER? : 24 December 2009 (Christmas Eve)
Note: This homily was delivered during the Christmas Midnight Mass in Xavier School last 24 December 2009.
Over 500 years before the very first Christmas, between 620 to 560 BC, there lived in Ancient Greece a famous storyteller. His name was Aesop, and he wrote children’s stories that were called fables. These fables always had a valuable lesson to teach not only children but even adults. I’m sure you’ve heard of some of them—like “The Tortoise and the Hare,” “The North Wind and the Sun,” and “The Boy Who Cried Wolf.”
