Christmas Message from Fr. David    Father David Lynch
 
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
 
Christmas brings family and friends together; it helps us appreciate the love in our lives we can often take for granted. The warmth and love surrounding Christmas is a joy to be savored with family and friends. It is a time to give and share with one another.

As the day of celebration for Christ's Incarnation approaches and arrives, please allow Debbie  and me to share our best wishes to all of you.  We especially want to raise up prayers for joyful and grateful experiences and memories.  In the midst of a time when there are great troubles throughout the world, we must remember that peace begins in our hearts.  Peace, like Love is an action words that require our ability to engage and share them.  May this holy season bring you peace and great love, so much so that you cannot help but to give it away.  That is what God did, as you know.  God gave himself to be like us to assure us that regardless how much darkness, hate and evil exits, Love will always prevail. 
 
I have never lost my boyhood feelings for Christmas time.  I will always remember how hard my parents worked to provide a joyful and meaningful time for sharing gifts and being with family.  During the miraculous time that is Christmas may you see with the eyes of a child, experience the wonder of love, and truly enjoy all that Christmas brings.

As you celebrate the miracle of this special season, may your heart be filled with joy and peace. May these holiday blessings linger in your home and stay with you throughout the year.

May all of us find the joy that comes at Christmas and may we feel it in our hearts and be warmed by the love that exists among us.
 
Blessings for a Merry, Merry Christmas!

Fr. David
