Dear Friends

As we continue in this Advent, we thank God for all His many blessings and look with anticipation to the celebration of the birth of Jesus.

This also brings forward the love and sacrifice of Bl. Mother and St. Joseph. Their spirit of love and obedience to the Father’s will reminds us of our commitment when we pray in the Angelus: Be it done unto me according to Thy will. Thanks to Bl. Mother’s Yes, we have a Savior whose birth we commemorate with the celebration of Christmas. And thanks to St. Joseph’s Yes, we have an example of the strength and protection for Bl. Mother and Jesus as Protector of the Holy Family, but for us too, and also Protector of the Church.

He is very strong and is Terror of Demons. We can lean on him too during this pilgrimage of life, to help guide us and protect us, our families and our homes.

With the joy of the Christmas Season, it is easy to forget why Jesus became Man: to redeem us. Bishop Sheen said that we were all born to live. Jesus is the only one born to die, and that was for us. His Yes brings hope and joy and celebration.

As we enter a new liturgical year, let us be thankful every day and let us keep our eyes fixed on Jesus with a renewed attitude of gratitude.

We wish all of you a Merry and Blessed Christmas with the courage and faith of Bl. Mother and Joseph as they lived out this mystery as they journeyed to Bethlehem.
