Christmas greetings

Posted by Joseph on 23 December, 2010

God bless you in your vocation this Christmas!

Dear friends,

The family unit was established by God with a blessing: “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it.”
At Christmas, we see the truths of our God who became man through a family, who lived a family life, who died to redeem us in the presence and with the cooperation of His mother.

We see a God- man who raised marriage to the dignity of a Sacrament, a sacred vocation whereby a man and woman, through grace, are united as one in a way that surpasses that of marriage in the Old Testament.
What a vocation! A man and a woman united to work with God in the begetting, forming and
education of children, by word and example, to fill, yes the earth, but more importantly, to fill the vacant thrones that are awaiting them in heaven.
What a vocation!
God bless you in your vocation this Christmas!

yours in Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
