What if Mary and Joseph had a Facebook? Last week the Huffington Post published an article and video titled "A Social Media Christmas," that showcased what it would be like if the Blessed Mother and her beloved Joseph had Facebook pages.

In the short movie, it carefully depicts and details the pregnancy of Mary and takes viewers through a small mini-biblical recreation of the Nativity via newsfeed updates.

 

The short movie does a really nice job of recreating the story of the birth of Jesus but it also makes us realize how we have become a society that relies on social media to get our latest news about what is going on in the world.  All Joseph and Mary had were each other and the Lord. They had no distractions like cell phones, email, Facebook, Twitter, or computers. Even without all that, the story of the Nativity has been passed down for thousands of years and the message of Christmas still remains the same; A joyous occasion in which a Savior was born who brought goodness and light into the world and saved us from sin and death.

As we continue to wait for the birth of Jesus, let us take a moment to slow down, to put down the cell phones, shut off the computers or TV's and reflect on how significant the birth of Jesus is in our own lives and how he has blessed us. Let us look at the good in our lives and be thankful for what we have been given.
