Christmas 2014

candles“The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; upon those who dwelt in the land of gloom a light has shone. For a child is born to us, a son is given us.”  Isaiah 9:1,5

Often our world can seem so dark. The media overwhelms us with daily reports of violence, war, accidents, abuse, and tragedies. In our personal lives we often get news of illness, broken relationships, accidents, and loss of employment etc. among our family, friends and co-workers.

candlesAs believers we have been preparing our hearts to rejoice in the birth of Christ, the Light of our world, this Christmas. More than 2000 years ago our Savior was born bringing limitless love, joy and peace to that time and place and for each of us to this day. His coming brought an invitation to each of us to be his messengers, to be light for our world, our corner of the world.

This Christmas, we, the Sisters, Associates and Consecrated Seculars from the US Province of the Daughters of the Holy Spirit, hope and pray that you will deeply know the love, joy and peace of Christ and accept the challenge to share it with the lives you touch in your corner of the world. Throughout the new year may you continue to grow in seeing the light of Christ and bringing it to others. We are grateful for the ways you touch our world.
