At this beautiful Christmas season there is nothing better than feeling the Presence of God in the midst of our everyday experiences. It is my vision that every one of you find a way to connect with God through this holiday season and feel the gift of this sharing time with your family in laughter, love and fun gatherings of light-hearted reflections of our Christ Spirit.
I am sharing a beautiful Christmas Prayer from St. John Paul II
“May the Virgin Mary help us to open the doors of our hearts to Christ, Redeemer of man and of history; may she teach us to be humble, because God looks upon the lowly; may she enable us to grow in understanding the value of prayer, of inner silence, of listening to God’s Word; may she spur us to seek God’s will deeply and sincerely, even when this upsets our plans; may she encourage us while we wait for the Lord, sharing our time and energies with those in need.
Mother of God, Virgin of expectation, grant that the God-who-comes will find us ready to receive the abundance of his mercy.
May Mary Most Holy, “Woman of the Eucharist” and Virgin of Advent, prepare us all to joyfully welcome Christ’s coming and to celebrate worthily his sacramental presence in the mystery of the Eucharist.”
Wishing all of you a Blessed and Wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year! Thank you for your all you do.
