Dear Friends in Christ,
We will spend the next few weeks preparing for Christmas. This preparation obviously includes Christmas shopping, decorating the house, writing cards, attending a multitude of parties and making last minute plans for visiting friends and family. But our preparation would not be complete without remembering the very reason for this holy season: the birth of our savior, Jesus Christ! May our celebration include extra prayer, attendance at Holy Mass and remembering the Church and the poor of this world.
Saint John’s Gospel tells us that “God so loved the world that he sent his only Son to be our savior, that all who believe in Him might not perish but might have eternal life!” God’s generosity can never outdone. At this most joyful time of year, may we be generous with one another and the Church. May God bless you and your family at this beautiful Season and in the year to come!
Sincerely yours in Christ,
