Excitement and Celebration

Dear Parishioners,

We are just about to celebrate Christmas. It’s time to take care of any last minute things we still have to do. This is an exciting time of year.

The greatest excitement is what we’re about to celebrate . . . the birth of our Savior! The true celebration of Christmas is Jesus’s coming into the world so we can be saved.

Today’s gospel tells us about the angel Gabriel coming to Mary and telling her she was chosen by God to give birth to our Savior. Mary’s “yes” brought Jesus into the world, who would gain for us the gift of eternal life.

So as we take care of everything we have to do before Christmas, let’s be sure we’re preparing for Jesus, the true celebration. And let’s always remember Mary’s “yes,” which brought Jesus into the world, who would gain for us the gift of eternal life.

Sincerely in Christ,

Father Dominick
