For two thousand years, the miraculous story of Jesus' birth
has stirred and renewed human hearts. For it reminds us that
just as surely as Mary held her prescious Son close to her heart
that first Christmas morning, our Divine Father embraces each
one of us with His eternal love.
May your Christmas celebration be rich in peace, joy and healing-
and may the blessings of our Lord and Savior kindle your hope
and deepen your faith throughout the coming year.
