Dear Friends in Christ,
In this blessed time of the year where many, even though they may not recognize it, are part of the celebration of the birth of Our Lord, Jesus. As every time people say, 'Merry Christmas', they are proclaiming the joy of the birth of the Lord. Let us, who know and love Christ, make the words 'Merry Christmas', a prayer for those we say them to. Let us in those words place the emphasis on Christ and let our internal prayer be that those who hear the word Christmas are touched by Christ's love through it.
Hoping that in doing so we may bring Christ into the life of the person so that they may be born anew in Him and His Holy Catholic Church. This is the greatest gift we can give and offer to others. This is the true spirit in which the words are meant to be spoken, The Holy Spirit, that brings merriment into the hearts of people as they are touched by the love of Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. As we look to the Infant Jesus, let us go to all in child like love bringing the Holy Child with us and through us into the lives of others
May your Christmas be full of blessings and the New Year be a year full of the love of God,
