A WORD FROM THE PASTOR
What is my gift for "Birthday boy"?
Let us check to see if Jesus is on our list this Christmas and if we have a special
gift in mind for him. We all know the pleasure of finding the right present for
our husband or wife, for our children, a good friend, a parent. What special
gift are we giving to Jesus this year to honor his birth, and what do we expect
God sent Jesus from heaven to earth to give us human beings what we really need
most in life: hearts filled with love.
That is the gift which Jesus really wants from us, and that is what you and I really need from
God this Christmas - a heart filled with love. We have tons of wants. We are like children with
a catalogue before Christmas, circling all our wants by the dozens. But we have one essential
need: a heart filled with love. God wants to give each of us a heart filled with love, mercy,
compassion and forgiveness on this Christmas and every day of our lives.
I pray that this Christmas to each one, each family of our church parish a HEART FILLED WITH
Wish you all a Happy Christmas and a spirit filled New Year 2020.
In the service of the Lord,
Father Thainese Alphonse
