Christ is born!!!  -  Glorify Him!!!
       Christmas, among all the feasts, is unique and full of beautiful experiences. God comes to us, as a small innocent Child, bringing us peace and joy, which are so needed in the world today. Is God being born in our hearts as well? Do we find God in our hearts? Are we inviting Him into our souls? There will not be a lasting peace in the world if we don’t bring true peace into our hearts and souls.
       We, your priests, would like to wish you all the best.  May the Savior of the world, who comes to us, as a Child, give you all His graces: good health, happiness, prosperity, peace, and joy. Those graces can come only from God. May they help us to love God and neighbor forever.
       During the Christmas Midnight Masses, and Christmas days, we will keep you in our prayers. We  also ask for your prayers, so we can better serve you.
       We wish you all the best in the coming new year, 2012. May God have you and your families in His care and grant you peace. 

CHRIST IS BORN!!! - GLORIFY HIM


Text Box: Sunday Scripture
	Jesus brings victory over sin and death to those who believe in Him. God promised David a dynasty that would stand firm forever. This promise was a source of hope for the Jewish people. They anticipated a time when a great leader would arise and defeat Israel's enemies. Jesus came from the House of David;  His reign has endured; and the enemies–including sin and death–have been defeated for all who believe.
	Today's first reading speaks of God building a house for David that will endure forever. The Gospel tells of the angel's announcement to the Blessed Virgin Mary, that she will be the mother of God and her child will rule from David's throne forever. The second reading affirms that salvation is offered to all who believe in Jesus.
