THE HOLY FAMILY OF JESUS, MARY AND JOSEPH First Reading: Sirach emphasizes the importance of honoring one’s parents. He explains that spiritual riches will come to those who are kind to their mother and father Sirach 3:2-7, 12-14 Second Reading: Paul advises us to treat each other with kindness and mercy and to forgive as God forgives us. His words remind families to always love and respect one another and let Christ’s peace reign in their hearts and in their homes. Colossians 3:13-21
Gospel: Jesus was brought to Jerusalem to be consecrated according to the law of Moses. A man named Simeon had learned he would not die until he had seen God’s anointed. Upon seeing Jesus, he immediately declared he had witnessed “the glory of your people of Israel.” The prophetess Anna also gave thanks and spoke of Jesus to all who would listen. Both recognized the power of Jesus, although He was still an infant. Luke 2:22-40
Stewardship by the BOOK December 31st The first reading today provides a challenging guideline for the good stewardship of our family relationships. How do I measure up?

CHRISTMAS WISHES _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Once again this Christmas season we reflect
on the story of the birth of Jesus. As we kneel before
the crib we are reminded that God so loved the world
that He sent His Son into the world, “That the world
might be saved through Him.”
As we gather to celebrate this Christmas
feast, may the birth of our Savior be a sign of new hope
for all people and may the light of God’s love radiate in
the words and deeds of all who believe in Jesus as God
May the Blessings of the Divine Child and the
Love of His Mother be yours at Christmas and every
day of the coming year.
Sincerely in Christ, Father Chris
Peace Be With You
at Christmas and always
May Christ make His home in your heart
bringing you His great gift of Peace,
and in turn may Christmas Peace be
your own loving gift to your family and
May your hearts and homes be filled with
the joy of Christ’s enduring presence
during this Blessed Christmas Season
and throughout the New Year.
Peace and Blessings,
Jaye Hedrick THE OUTDOOR NATIVITY is a beautiful reminder of that First Christmas when Jesus was born in a stable. It was donated by Dennis Basso in memory of his parents.
