May the message of the Gospel be cherished in your heart and in your words and actions this Christmas.

Hold close to those you love, and even closer to those in need and vulnerability.

Breathe deeply the love of God, and share deeply that love with all those around you.

Have a blessed Christmas Season and a holy and safe start to the New Year.

God’s peace,
