Christmas Message from Br Louis.
May the Infant Jesus bless you and your dear ones this Christmas. For many it has been a diffcult year, let Christmas renew our hope!
As we come to adore the Christ Child in the crib, let us ask our Immaculate Mother to prepare our hearts to receive the graces, which our Saviour offers to each of us, especially in the Holy Eucharist.Our Heavenly Father has sent his Son for each of us. For God so loved the world......
Let us remember , the Crib leads us to the Cross, the Cross to the Resurrection. Thus we come to the Altar of God,where the Sacred mysteries of our Salvation are made present. Let us renew our devotion the Holy Mass and not be deceived into treating the Sacred Mysteries with such casual regard as by so many. Let us pray for our priests that they may be worthy stewards of the Sacred Mysteries. Out of love for us , Our Lord offered himself totally for us in all humility and poverty, in the crib, on the Cross and continues this offering upon the Altar. In total humility, He the Divine Mercy comes to us, fully present, as the Holy Eucharist under the appearances of bread and wine. As our Emmanuel, Christ remains in the Blessed Sacrament, to be with us. Oh come let us adore Him! Let us be united with Him, so we can love our neigbour and be ready instruments of the Immaculata, to advance the Kingdom of the Most Sacred Heart.
The greatest gift we can offer to the Divine Infant is the gift of ourselves. This Christmas in union with the Immaculata may we surrender ourselves totally to Jesus. Lord thy will be done!
United with Our Lady may we pray to the Most High, " Be it done unto me according to thy Will!" Before the Crib this Christmas, may we be strengthened to go and share the good tidings of Christ, like the shepherds of Bethlehem. Our Mother of God and St Joseph may we receive the Word made flesh,with your purity and trust, God incarnate, so tender and mild!
May we be united in prayer this Christmas.
Br Louis Mary
