Pastor’s Message – December 29, 2019

On this first weekend of Christmas we always celebrate it with The Holy Family. Each day at Mass this past week we heard of the stories not just about the Christ Child in the Manger, but why He was conceived in The Virgin’s womb to begin with…to save us and lead us to Him. Don’t miss any part of it or when the tree comes down after the Wisemen come, you might just get packed away with the ornaments and never find your way The Cross that will always lead to His Glory! So, how are you planning to celebrate New Year’s Eve this year? Will it be in grace or in gluttony, in partying or in praying? This year our pastoral staff is proposing an option that you can be a part of at anytime from following the 5:00 p.m. Vigil Mass for our Theotokos (Mary Mother of God) until after the ball drops in Times Square. How about stopping in for a little New Year’s Eve fun with Jesus in Eucharistic Adoration? That’s right… end your 2019 in thanksgiving or begin your 2020 with the perfect vision of faith in Adoration. Come in for any of it or all of it…what a night! Have a Blessed Christmas and a Holy New Year, Fr. Bline
