Dear people of God in the Diocese of San Diego,
We wish you a joyous and peace-filled Christmas. As you prepare to celebrate with your family and friends, I urge you to make a place in your heart for the Prince of Peace, that we might seek the world that God has dreamed of from before the beginning of all that is. Help to build a world where no one goes hungry, where all are housed, where each person can find justice, where we tend to our neighbors as we tend to our closest kin.
Bless you in this season. Welcome Jesus in your heart. Help to make his good news present for all those around you.
Peace-filled and joyous Christmas to you,
