Well, it is almost here, Christmas 2020. Like everything this year, it will be a different experience from what other years were like. Maybe this year will call us into a clearer vision of what we are celebrating, God become man, in the mystery of the Incarnation. The trappings are nice, but they can be traps keeping us away from the true reason for Christmas. You may not be able to invite the whole crowd over this year, but you can always extend a special invite to Jesus. He won’t be wearing a mask and he will probably want to breathe on you. Let Him. It’s the breath of life.
Some of the Masses for Christmas are filled because we have to gather safely. But, between the two parishes we have 16 masses so you should be able to find one that still has room. If you have not been to mass since the COVID began, just a reminder that you must register and use the main doors to enter.
I would like to thank all who sent me a card for my recent 40th anniversary to priesthood and/or for my birthday. Your thoughtfulness is much appreciated. Wishing you a Blessed Christmas.
