Christmas greetings 2016

"When we hear the story of the birth of Christ, let us be silent and let the Child speak. Let us take his words to heart in rapt contemplation of his face. If we take him in our arms and let ourselves be embraced by him, he will bring us unending peace of heart. This Child teaches us what is truly essential in our lives." (Pope Francis, Christmas homily, 2015).
My sincere prayers and best wishes for you and your dear ones as we contemplate the mystery of the Word made Flesh, the Emmanuel.
Know of my prayer for each one of you before the Manger.
In the Christ-Child, Sr. M. Louise pddm
