From Fr. Bill's Desk

Dear Fellow Parishioners,

  Let us think of Christmas as God’s therapy for the deepest wound of all ~ our rebelliousness against God. This rebelliousness takes away our trust in Him, which is the most grievous hurt of all. If we can’t lean on God, then we can’t find security and peace anywhere! This Christmas spend some time pondering your Nativity scene at home. Let the great truth, as great as the starry heavens themselves, sink in –I can trust God. Dear Christ child—I trust you!

**************

This beautiful prayer may be prayed at any time; however, it is particularly 

efficacious when prayed just after receiving Holy Communion:

 

Soul of Christ, sanctify me

Body of Christ, save me 

Blood of Christ, inebriate me  

Water from Christ’s side, wash me

Passion of Christ, strengthen me 

O good Jesus, hear me 

Within Thy wounds hide me 

Suffer me not to be separated from Thee 

From the malicious enemy defend me 

In the hour of  my death call me  And bid me come unto Thee 

That I may praise Thee with Thy saints and with Thy angels  

Forever and ever

Amen.
