We are now under two weeks away from celebrating the Birth of Jesus. With this in mind I would like to spend a few moments reflecting on what we are doing to make this a Special time of year. And when I say a Special time of year I am not talking about all of the really nice gatherings that we are taking part in or the amazing decorations that we have seen. I am talking about finding some time during our busy schedule to crawl into the crèche with the Holy Family to just ponder the great gift that they and in turn all of us received the day that Jesus was born. For those of you who are parents I want you to think back to the moment that you held your child(ren) for the first time gazing down into their eyes rejoicing at the wonder of this child. This is the quality time that we need to spend with the infant Jesus for thou this event took place over two thousands years ago it is a birth that forever changed our lives. Let us never take this great act of God’s love for granted. Let us ponder the Gift of Jesus.
God’s continued Peace,
Fr. Yvon J. Royer
