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!
