Merry Christmas - December 25, 2020
Joyful Blessed Christmas!

Dear Parishioners and Friends,

Fr. Gener, the Parish Staff, Pastoral Council, Finance Council and I would like to wish you and your family a very blessed Christmas! We are grateful to be part of such a loving community here at St. Martin of Tours. May your Christmas celebrations be safe and filled with joy.

Many Blessings,

Fr. Saju Joseph

God of every nation and people, from the very beginning of creation you have made manifest your love: when our need for a Savior was great you sent your Son to be born of the Virgin Mary.

To our lives he brings joy and peace, justice, mercy, and love.

Lord, bless all who look upon this manger; may it remind us of the humble birth of Jesus, and raise our thoughts to him, who is God-with-us and Savior of all, and who lives and reigns forever and ever.

R/. Amen.
Dear Heavenly Father, love brought Jesus to the earth, and love brings us to this Christmas table. Lord, help us see the care that we have for one another as a sign of your compassion within us. Help us see our sadness over the virus as a sign of your sorrow for those who suffer. And may the memories of love shared, warm our hearts for years to come. Today as we share this holiday feast, may we also share with one another a joyful heart and a warm smile. May our Christmas dinner be filled with kindness.

R/. Amen.
