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 can dispel the darkness of our hearts and give us true peace and joy. Tonight we celebrate the entrance into the world of the Light that dispels both the darkness of sin and that of our hearts. Let us open our hearts to Jesus as we celebrate His birth anew, so He may dispel any darkness that lies within us, renew our faith, and bring us greater peace and joy.
	Isaiah tells that a child will be born who will bring peace and salvation. The second reading reminds us that the Son of God became human to free us from sin and bring us salvation. In the Gospel, we hear that Jesus was born in a manger in Bethlehem, and that angels heralded His birth to shepherds in the hills.
