“Merry Christmas and Happy New Year”

Christmas BullDear Parishioners,

Christmas and New Year is a time for gratitude and celebration. It is a time of joy and peace that we celebrate with our families, relatives, and friends. Since my ordination to the priesthood, I have only once celebrated Christmas with my (immediate) family and that was in 2012. Over these years, the MSC’s and parishes where I’ve ministered have been the family that I have mostly celebrated Christmas and New Year with.

As we celebrate these two special events, I invite you to reflect on three things:

First, that this is a time to remember what God has done for us (i.e. God’s presence) in the ordinary and in the extraordinary moments of our life throughout this year. Consciously taking the time to reflect on these experiences will give us sense of gratitude.

Second, that this is a time to celebrate. A sense of gratitude that arises out of the knowledge that God is with us through the joys, the sorrows and even the humdrum of everyday life is the foundation for our reason to celebrate this season with joy and gladness.

Third, that this is a time of hope. Christmas is a season of trust and hope for a better future, because we trust that God is always with us. This trust should enable us to face the future with a spirit of optimism. Our identity as a Christian people is one of hope. So let us approach the New Year with optimism and not pessimism.

With a grateful heart I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
