Grace-filled Christmas and New Year!

Dear CBFSEA Brothers and Sisters,

Wishing each one of you

a blessed and grace-filled

Christmas and New year.

As we contemplate baby Jesus,

God’s greatest gift to mankind,

let us remember also that this tiny Baby

is the future KING of the KINGDOM of GOD;

a mighty warrior who will triumph

over all the evil in the world,

the LAMB of God who takes away

all the sins of the world;

the GOOD SHEPHERD who seeks and saves the lost,

heals the sick and comforts crushed hearts.

Let us therefore REJOICE,

for God is good and merciful.

And may this Divine Babe set our hearts afire

to shower love and mercy to all we meet.

Merry Christmas to all of you

and your loved ones….

and a blissful New Year too!

A Time of Preparation!

Advent-1

ADVENT 2015

It’s Advent! A time of preparation,

of expectation, of hope!

It’s time to make that Christmas list,

choose gifts for family, relatives,

friends and those in need.

But more important than the wrapped gifts

to prepare is to prepare ourselves.

What do we want Jesus to see

in ourselves for his birthday?

What could be the best gift

that we can offer to Jesus?

Jesus does not need

our material things.

What He needs are:

patience, humility, forgiveness,

kindness, justice, respect,

service, care and love for others

especially to our own family and community.

WE wish you the graces and inspiration of Advent!

A blessed Advent to one and all!
