The Great Truth of Christmas... Father Tony, 12/24/2017
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
A blessed Christmas to you all. As we celebrate this great feast of the incarnation, let us give thanks for the many blessings we have received this year. The great truth of Christmas is that God became man in order to save us. The Lord wants us to know his love every day of our lives; and that is something to celebrate and be thankful for.
Let us listen to the words of Pope Francis: “Let us pause to gaze upon the crib, and relive in our imagination the birth of Jesus: light and peace, dire poverty and rejection. With the shepherds, let us enter into the real Christmas, bringing to Jesus all that we are, our alienation, our unhealed wounds, our sins. Then, in Jesus, we will enjoy the taste of the true spirit of Christmas: the beauty of being loved by God. Contemplating his humble and infinite love, let us simply tell him: Thank you. Thank you because you have done all this
