Great is the mystery of godliness, God was manifest in the flesh. "Fear not: for behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to
all people." (St Luke 2:10)
It is with our hearts full of joy that we all witness now at the feast of the
Nativity of Jesus Christ, the Lord, as the word was made flesh and dwelt
among us, full of grace and truth. (St. John 1:14)
The mystery of God's incarnation so inconceivable for the mind is quite clear
and close, for faithful and loving heart. We are filled with spiritual joy,
because God is with us and we are with God.
With trembling and contrite hearts we kneel before the Holy Child lying in
Bethlehem's manger. There we worship Him - The Creator, the Sustainer, and the
Savior, The Prince of Peace, We celebrate, and let the Peace Truth, Love which
emanate from our Lord and Savior, warm our hearts.
Let us remember the joys of our fellowship with each other in our Lord and
Savior and give thanks unto Him together.
We feel once again that God is not only a Light, but is Love and that he that
dwelleth in love, dwelleth in God and God in him. Let the incarnate God lead
our way towards peace and justice.
With love in Christ and with all best wishes and prayers for a blessed
Christmas and a Happy and Peaceful New Year.
