Dear Sisters in Christ,
As we approach the holy day of Christmas, let us prepare our hearts for the event that redeems and restores our soul, our life and our hope.
Let us try to imagine that girl who was at home and received the announcement: Our Lady.
The ultimate example of something that couldn’t be reduced to a sentimental or emotional moment; rather a radical newness that changed human history—a fact in history that changed human destiny once and for all.
Christianity is a presence within your daily life, a presence that renews our gaze on life, with hope and wonder in front of the whole world.
My most sincere blessing to all of you, your families, and your work for the coming new year.
May peace and joy abide always in you.
Yours in Christ,
