Letter for December 21, 2014
4th Sunday of Advent

 

 

Dear Friends,

Today’s Gospel, on this 4th
Sunday of Advent, we hear the
familiar story of the angel,
Gabriel, appearing to Mary and
asking her to give God a human
nature. We are forever grateful
for her, yes, that God would become one of us; to
share in our humanity in all of its joys and sorrows.
As the book of Hebrews says, “He was
like us in all things, but sin”.

It is hard to believe that Christmas is officially
here in only 3 days but really, the spirit of Christmas
is here every day. For what do we celebrate
at Christmas? “Love being born”? Yes. “God so
loved the world that he gave us His only Son.”
God’s love for us was born in Bethlehem, but it
was also born in you and me whenever we reach
out, with love, in service to each other.
Love being born on our altar in the Eucharist:
Our hearts are grateful that we don’t need to envy
the shepherds or the magi. For the real deal, Jesus
Christ, is right here; Body, Blood, Soul and
Dignity in the Eucharist.

Be assured, you and your family will be in my
prayers this Christmas season, and on behalf of
Fr. Jim, Deacon Bob and the parish staff, we
wish you a Blessed Christmas and a Holy,
Healthy, New year.

Father Dave
