Christmas Message 2018

E-mail Print PDF

Taking the child Jesus in his arms, Simeon praised
God, "... my eyes have seen your salvation, which
you have prepared in the presence of all peoples, a
light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to
your people Israel." (Luke 2:30-32)

My dear friends,

gendron 120x151Christmas! Christmastime again! We love this celebration and get ready for it enthusiastically, hoping everything will be perfect. Our preparations take many forms, spiritual and more interior, material and more external. Too often perhaps, the external preparations can take away from preparing hearts as Advent invites us to do. Without always realizing it, getting gifts and meals ready, inviting and visiting our loved ones, decorating our homes and even our churches can take on more importance than Advent. But it is the spiritual and religious journey Advent offers which lets the birth of Jesus open our hearts to the grace of Christmas and fill every dimension of our lives with unique joy.

The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) and the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace – Caritas Canada (CCODP) released a joint statement in light of a recent news article containing unauthorized and incomplete information regarding the ongoing joint review of a number of Development and Peace's international partners. The information was obtained without the consent of either the CCCB or the CCODP. The joint statement was prepared to highlight the shared concern by both the CCCB and CCODP that the premature publication of information risks undermining the joint process, the results of the review prior to its completion, and inaccurately casting a negative or false light on all involved.
