Christmas Blessings!

A Reflection for Christmas by Sister Loretta Cornell, MHSH President

shepherdsThe Shepherds said to one another, “Let us go then to Bethlehem to see this thing that has taken place, which the Lord has made known to us.” So they went in haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the infant lying in a manger. When they saw this, they made known the message that had been told them about this child. All who heard it were amazed by what they had been told by the shepherds….The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, just as it had been told to them.

–Luke 2:15-18; 20

 Like the Shepherds, we, too, are to make known the message – The Good News of Jesus. It is in our words of charity and in our deeds of love. Jesus is present in our actions, words and charity.

God is peace; let us ask our God to help us be peacemakers each day, in our life, in our families, in our cities and nations, in the whole world. Let us allow ourselves to be moved by God’s goodness.

–Pope Frances

 We remember that God was revealed in Glory through Jesus and continues to bring wonder, joy, hope, compassion, understanding, blessings and Love—the love that is born in each of us every day and dwells among us.

The Mission Helpers of the Sacred Heart wish you a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year.
