In Jesus, God’s Son, God gives us the most precious gift. Through his birth we are reborn, and we are enabled to live in the light of him who is the radiant light of God’s glory. Christ makes it possible for us to share God’s life.
The incredible hush and stillness of Christmas Day always reminds one a new and forcibly uniqueness of this day of mystery and joy. Famously, in the past, hostilities have ceased, enemies have fraternized. People seek out their family and friends, and there is an attempt, however fleeting, to be kinder, more open and sympathetic. All these precious qualities promises to the birth of Jesus, the advent of God-with-us, Emmanuel.
With deep joy and gratitude, I extend to you my prayerful best wishes for a holy and blessed Christmas. I extend to all of you an open, grateful heart of welcome. May the Love, Joy and Peace of Baby Jesus be in your hearts and your homes. As we will celebrate Christmas Masses as one big parish family, each one of you can be sure and certain that you are all remembered at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and in the Liturgy of the Office. I would like to thank all of our parishioners for your commitment to our parish this past year. The giving of your time, talent and treasure to the Lord continues to bear fruit for the Kingdom of God. I would also like to extend my gratitude to all who worked so hard to make our Christmas celebrations truly wonderful. Thanks to all who were involved in decorating our church and setting up for the different liturgies, this season and throughout the liturgical year. And a special thank you to the devoted members of the various ministry’s in our parish and especially to those few who work quietly, behind the scenes. May all my dear parishioners be over shadowed with the mighty and powerful blessings of the Baby Jesus. May Mary, the Mother of the Child Jesus and our Mother, watch over you and our beloved St. Hedwig’s Parish always.
