“God came into the world as a child to make us children of God. What a magnificent gift! This day, God amazes us and says to each of us: “You are amazing.” – Pope Francis.

For many of us, this year may not be the Christmas we envisioned or hoped for. Let us remember why we celebrate. Jesus, the Son of God entered into our humanity to remind us that we are children of God, created in his image and likeness, each as unique gifts and invited to express in our own unique ways his divinity flowing through us into our world. Jesus reminds us again that there never has been nor ever will be anyone like you. You are amazing, unique, and beautiful. May we see each other as God sees us and love each other as God loves us!

Merry Christmas!
