Children’s Homily on the Sunday Before Nativity

This is a great time of year. We have Christmas and New Years, and we get time off school and work, and we get presents. But do you know what I like  best about this time of year? We get to see family members who we don’t see a lot. We get to see our cousins, and our aunts and uncles, and grandparents, and maybe even our great grandparents.

Tomorrow, we celebrate the birth of Jesus—the Nativity—and today, the Sunday before Nativity, we learn about Jesus’ ancestors—His family. That’s right. Jesus has a family, just like you have a family.
