Dear Friends,
 
With Christmas the long-awaited event has become real in the person of Jesus Christ, our savior. This happy news changed everything, including how we view our life and how best we can make of it. With Christmas the grandeur of God is manifested profoundly and poignantly. God’s coming into the world made a fresh start in the life of humanity. The carols and hymns that we sing during this time remind us again and again that we need not be afraid. All the fear, anxiety, frustration, angst and discouragement is transformed into courage, strength and power because of Jesus’ arrival amidst us. This is a momentous time for all of us to start fresh and new in and with the Lord. 
 
The story of Christmas is our story. It is a story of the celebration of life and life in abundance. So, let us celebrate life. With Christ’s birth amidst us, we are called to celebrate life in everyday and every way. Life of holiness and sanctification is ushered by Jesus and there is no looking back. We walk with Christ and Christ will show us the way, truth and life. This life which is unique and essential in the sight of God will give us a new meaning and moment.  
 
I wish you and your family a very happy Christmas and God’s abundant blessings on each one of you. May our journey together as a parish community built strongly on the person of Jesus Christ take us together making a difference in dedication to the service of the Lord and our neighbor. 
 
A Christmas Prayer
Jesus, the Light of the World, as we celebrate your birth, may we begin to see the world in the light of the understanding you give us. As you chose the lowly, the outcasts, and the poor to receive the greatest news the world had ever known, so may we worship you in meekness of heart. May we also remember our brothers and sisters less fortunate than ourselves in this season of giving. AMEN
 
            Merry Christmas; Happy and Holy New Year 2020!
