A very merry Christmas and a blessed new year to you all from the friars!
The following quote captures our uncomplicated approach to ministry:
"This is the real commitment of Advent: to bring joy to others.
Joy is the true gift of Christmas, not expensive presents that demand time and money.We can transmit this joy simply: with a smile, with a kind gesture, with some small help, with forgiveness.
Let us give this joy and the joy given will be returned to us. Let us seek in particular to communicate the deepest joy, that of knowing God in Christ. Let us pray that this presence of God's liberating joy will shine out in our lives" (Pope Benedict XVI, December 18, 2005).
Thank you for all your prayers and support. We greatly appreciate your help. You have our prayers!
