NATIVITY IN BETHLEHEM-The birth of Jesus Christ nearly 2000 years ago has a profound influence upon the-social andspiritual
life of each person in the Western world. The anniversary of his birth is the occasion for both celebration and serious thought.

Christmas is for the children,
they say, and they are right. And
Christmas for the children is a
wonderful time, a time to remem-
ber. But Christmas is more, Christ-
mas is also for the grown up.
To give, the saying goes, is bet-
ter than to receive. This is one of
the lessons of Christmas.

tradi- For all the greed shown in won-
dering what one will be given is
to sig-far less than the sacrifices made
to the by spending far beyond one's
normal means or inclination that
aotherone's child, friend or spouse might
Christ- enjoy the Christmas deserved.
And giving gifts, Christmas trees,
and Christmas turkey bring -the
of the family together. The family often
ckaged seems to be breathing its lastgasps
of the as the dominant social unit of our
>roach. culture, and Christmas helps re-
ch de- store the color to its cheeks, if
'istmas only for one day in the year.
ves in Getting together, families
Santa strengthen their ties and renew
for the their values. For despite the many

other aspects, the central fact of
Christmas is Christ.
Christians today, Rev. Andrew
Missiras, of Saint Nicholas Greek
Orthodox Church, explained, cele-
brate the joy of Christmas. From
the Scriptures, he said, we learn
that the day brings "Glory to God
in the highest, on the earth peace,
goodwill toward men,"
There is a reconciliation of God
and man, fulfillment of the woes
of 'the world, Rev. Missiras said.
Welds Man
The atmosphere thus created
welds man to God, but likewise
man to man. There is a triangular
relationship, Rev. Missiras illu-
strated, with God, man and the
individual at the vertices. Each
must love the other two to hold the-
form together, for each man's tri-
angle has mankind adjacent.
But more than a welding pro-
cess, Christmas often provides the
individual with food for thought,
with provocations to examine him-
self and his values.
When celebrating the holiday of,
Christmas, Rev. John Bradley, of
Saint. Mary's Student C h a p e 1,
points out, one celebrates the anni-
versary of the birth ,.of Christ.
Observation of anyone's birthday
varies according to the person's
value to those observing the ;day.
Christ Is God
Since Christ is the incarnation
of God, he said, Christmas is so
very important. This is the pri-
mary consideration of the Catholic
in observing Christmas, Father
Bradley said.'
Since Christianity has domin-
ated the western world for more
than one thousand years and has
formed a major portion of western
legal and social structure, the
example of the birth and life of
its founder provides for many peo-
ple of various personal beliefs a
focus for worship.and self-examin-
ation, giving Christmas a deeper
and, for many, a more significant
meaning.
