Christmas is coming…

Dear Parishioners,

In just a few weeks, we will celebrate the birth of our Lord. Some may already have a Christmas list with things others may not even want, much less need. Truth be told, if you would really like to make somebody’s Christmas this year, maybe the place to start is with yourself. When you see injustice, be an advocate for justice. When you see hatred, be the presence of love. When someone ignores you and treats you as if you did not exist, pray for them. And yes, especially with those closest to you, see in them what God sees. Be God’s presence in these waiting days we call Advent. If you will, you might be surprised how the waiting will be transformed into the joy of Christmas.

souls of the Faithful Departed, for one must
be so pure to enter Heaven!”
