CHRISTMAS GREETINGS 2015

PEACE I BEQUEATH TO YOU,
MY OWN PEACE I GIVE YOU,
A PEACE THE WORLD CANNOT GIVE,

THIS IS MY GIFT TO YOU.

[1]


It certainly is obvious to anyone following the news these days that the world cannot give us peace the way things are going. One wonders if it ever could with so much emphasis on wealth, power and pleasure. This Christmas we wish you the gift of peace that Jesus has come to give those who faithfully follow him as these words  recorded in the Gospel of St. John 14:27 remind us. May you experience the gift of peace that only Christ can give us this Christmas and ever after is our wish and prayer for you!
