Dear Mary's Child,
On Christmas, God shows his love for you in the form of an innocent, holy child. You and I celebrate the long-awaited joyful coming of our Savior. He came to Earth to be with you, to understand you.
All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: “Behold, the virgin shall be with child and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel,” which means “God is with us.”
How can you help but react with joy? “Christmas is joy, religious joy, an inner joy of light and peace,” Pope Francis tells us. God took on flesh to live a human life. We praise Him because we are wonderfully made in His image, an image He bore to dwell among us.
It all begins on Christmas. God is with you. He understands you. Through the intercession of Our Mother of Perpetual Help, share the prayers of your heart with Him today.
In Jesus, through Mary,
Brother Daniel Korn, C.Ss.R.
Redemptorist Missionary of the Denver Province
P.S. Send your Christmas intentions today. I will forward them to Rome to be placed on the altar before the icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help.
