Christmas Message 2019
end a quarrel.
Seek out a forgotten
friend. Dismiss suspicion,
and replace it with trust.
Write a love letter. Share some
treasure. Give a soft answer. Keep
a promise. Find the time. Forgo a grudge. Forgive an enemy. Listen. Apologize if you
were wrong. Try to understand. Examine your demands on others. Think first of someone else.
Be kind. Be gentle. Appreciate. Laugh a little. Laugh a little more. Express your gratitude. Gladden the heart of a Child. Welcome a stranger. Take pleasure in the earth’s splendor and the wonder of the majestic scenery it beholds. Speak your love.
Speak it again.
Speak it yet
On my last Christmas with you, as Pastor, I pray that every one of you and your families will be showered with God’s grace in the New Year.
I want to take this opportunity to offer my heartfelt thanks to all of you for your generosity to our parish. OMC is what it is because of you. God is never outdone in generosity and so you can be assured of a one hundred fold return for all you have done and all you continue to do.
May our Infant Savior hold you in the palm of his hand throughout the New year.
