Christmas message from Fr.Vicar

“Behold a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and his name shall be called Emmanuel, which means, God with us” (Mt. 1: 23).

On the occasion of the feast of our Lord’s birth, I am happy to send a message to all of you.  At the very outset I convey to you warm and affectionate greetings for Christmas and pray that the gifts of love and peace brought by Jesus may overflow into the year 2014 !  Of all the names that are give to Jesus the best that suits Him is Emmanuel, God with us, because this was revealed by the Angel who brought the good news of Jesus’ birth and consequently over salvation. This name expresses a relationship between God and human beings and among ourselves and with the whole creation. Such is the nature of our God to come down and identify Himself with us. It was His will and design to clothe Himself in our nature and to become one of us. This is the great miracle that He worked, that is He became human so that we may become divine.

Jesus, true to his name, remains with us always. “I am with you always, until the end of the age” (Mt. 28:20). Our life should manifest and reveal His presence with us, the way we live it by being signs of love, peace and harmony. Let us open our heart to accept Him as the Lord and Master not only at Christmas but every moment of our life, because our God’s name is EMMANUEL.

May the blessings of this holy season descend on all of you in plenty.

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year
