Merry Christmas 2019
Christmas 2019 “For a child has been born to us!”
Tonight, we solemnly celebrate the Feast of the Birth of Jesus whom the Angel at the first Christmas in
Bethlehem announced as the Savior (Luke 2:11) and Isaiah, centuries earlier had forseen as a Redeemer (Is 52:9)
Tonight we receive God’s promise: the Lord’s Birth. The Heavenly Father
has given us His own Son: for this indescribable gift we are filled with joy.
The Son of God, conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit in the womb
of the Immaculate Virgin Mary and born in the stable at Bethlehem chose to enter
the world within a family – the Holy Family of Nazareth.
Yet, the Savior of the world has come down from Heaven. Let us rejoice.
This proclamation, filled with deep rejoicing, echoed in the night of Bethlehem.
Tonight, the Church renews it with unchanged Joy: the Savior is born for us.
As this holy night comes, the message of Jesus, the Savior, who is Light echoes
once more from the crib of Bethlehem in the ears of each Christian, and
re-echoes in our hearts with an ever new freshness of Joy and Piety
God of Peace, Gift of Peace, come to live in the heart of every
Individual and of every family of St. Joseph Calasanctius parish.
May the Joy of Christmas and this Holy night and the peace which the
Birth of the Savior brings into the world be in your hearts forever.
Merry Christmas! May God the Savior shower His abundant blessing upon you
and your families. Have a blessed Christmas, and a prosperous New Year!
