From the Files of Long Ago
THE INSPIRATION OF
I To each one of us Christmas brings!
a vital message of inspiration. Christ- 1
mas makes cfieer, drives out sorrow,
makes life out of death and proclaims
that love is the Law of the Universe.
It is the Day of Giving, of self for
j getting, of making other people happy
I from the babe to the bedridden; a
day that enshrines childhood and glo
rifies old age. And it is even more
than that, Christmas brings to some
. ( as the angel did to Mary) honor
and sacred sanction which it places
upon parenthood. The mother of our
; Lord said (with a true prophecy >
which embraces all humanity in its
blessing) "From henceforth all gen- ;
erations shall be blessed."
How true it is that Christmas,
wherever Christianity has pervaded
the world, humanity has been blessed,
motherhood has been honored, an'd
family life has been made beautiful
and happy! Mary was to be called
blessed because she was to give a Sa
vior to all generations. This, she
knew, was the Voice of Prophecy;
and who shall say that she did not
also foresee (what has occurred) that
the chains were to be lifted from wo
man and that from being the slave ,
or toy of man, she should become
again, as in Paradise, his helpmate
and companion his associate in all
honorable and noble work for the
human race, and in the high and holy
endeavors for the establishment of
God's Kingdom around the world.
The greatest inspiration that comes
from the Birthday of Him who is the
subject and center of oyr Christinas
festivities is its call to rally under
i His Banner and to go on forth at Hia
! command with the Gospel message. It
offers inspiration to service, and is
the vision and hope of the better
days when Peace on Earth to men and
good will shall be permanently real
ized. The human race must be won
before it can hope for peace. Here is
the great inspiration of Christmas.
The inspiration of Christmas, is
Love. Love for God and for man.
It cometh not by observation, but it
permeates the world's advance as
subtly and surely as the ether fills
the eternal spheres, breathing through (
each human life, making souls fit for i
the Life of God.
A PRAYER FOR THE \
INSPIRATION OF CHRISTMAS I
O Thou Blessed Father of us all, j
may Christmas bring to us all its
vital message of inspiration, making
cheer drive out sorrow, making life
out of death and proclaiming that
Love is the Law of the Universe.
May _it be to us a day of giving, of
self forgetting, of making others hap
py from the babes to the bedridden.
Grant that it may be a day that en
shrines childhood and glorifies old
We thank Thee that wherever
Christianity has pervaded the world,
humanity has been blessed, mother
