In John’s Gospel, the essential point of the Christmas story is made without the details we find elsewhere in the Bible. He simply states that Jesus came to live with us in our sometimes dark world so He could bring us back into the light of God our Father in Heaven. Our lives can be filled with the darkness of illness, family estrangement, personal struggle, conflicts in race, politics and religion.  Sometimes we need a little light in our lives.  When we hear the message of hope that Jesus brings, we do not lose heart even when our world may at times seem dark.

 

This Christmas we will celebrate Jesus who is the light of the world. This light reveals to us the truth of who we are, of Whose we are, and shows us where we need God, and invites us on the way to go forward in faith and in trust. If you sometimes feel that the world is dark and hurting, look to the light that is Jesus. He has come to give light to all who call on him.  We have hope because we know that there is light in Jesus our Savior.

 

Come to Mass this Advent and Christmas and give your life over to the Lord, our Light and Savior.  If things look dark in your life or in the life of someone you know, come and give it over to the Lord.  Allow him to shed light on the darkness.

 

Come and celebrate the LIGHT!

 

On behalf of the Parish staff, we wish you a very

grace-filled Advent, a merry Christmas and a blessed New Year. We hope that the Spirit of Jesus Christ may

enlighten you this Advent and Christmas season and that you may be filled with the joy of knowing our Lord and Savior.

 

I hold you in prayer.
