Christmas Message 2016
My dear friends,
“And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?,” Lk1:43. As we approach Christmas let us try to pause and wonder at the immensity of such an event as God coming down as Emmanuel so that he could be with us forever. To echo Elizabeth’s words: In fact in Mary, the savior himself was visiting her! Christmas then is about discovering God in the unexpected and receiving him.
The birth of the savior took place outside of the city of Bethlehem. Had the shepherds not been alerted by God’s messenger, Jesus’ birth might have been totally unnoticed. It was not without controversy either as hundreds of innocents lost their lives because of Herod’s paranoia and greed. As it turns out people to this day still lose their lives because of the humble birth of a child in a manger centuries ago.
My wish for us all is that are able to surrender our lives to this innocent life who grew up to become the Savior of the world. We are tasked to harness the sense of joy and love this birth brings to us during Christmas and let it permeate our hearts and souls throughout…
I am aware that as a parish community we are in the midst of a transition. I appreciate your patience and count on your commitment and generosity. Our goal is to grow and empower one another because when we offer our weak human nature for God to work on great things can happen since grace works on nature.
Let me sincerely wish you, your loved ones and the many friends of the parish a holy, Merry Christmas and a Christ filled 2017.
