But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.

This joy is not limited to the lyrics of a Christmas Carol, or the words on a Christmas Card.  This joy is not based on a feeling that happens when you receive a good report from your annual exam.  This Joy does not appear a certain time of the year.  This joy is not just for those who attend a weekly worship or mass.  This joy is not based on your yearly income, or the lack of.    This joy is the knowledge and belief that there is a savior, Jesus the Christ who came for all people.
