Christmas and New Year's Mass Schedule - December 2019
Reconciliation is a much used word in our present-day culture, but we seldom ponder in our hearts what a treasure and mystery reconciliation really is. In the Christmas season, its meaning and implications are vividly concrete as the birth of Christ brings a new light and a saving grace to our capacity to be reconciled and be reconcilers in our daily life.
To all the diocesans,
We live in a paradoxical world. On the one hand, the opportunity to travel makes the world smaller and helps us to discover that we are truly part of a global village. Electronic communication tools allow us to share our ideas and exchange with groups on several continents. On the other hand, more and more countries are erecting barriers to limit or prevent the free movement of people. Moreover, Internet forums are becoming more radical and become a place for the exchange of increasingly virulent and hurtful insults.
