Peace Be With You

"Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart"

by Bishop Blase J. Cupich

(From the December 20, 2012 edition of the Inland Register)

This first disciple, the Mother of Jesus, invites us to approach Christís coming with wonder and awe, realizing that our lives, so changed by Christ coming into the world, are part of all that God is doing in the world. Like Mary, we are partners in all that God wants to accomplish in bringing creation to fulfillment. This should leave us with a new respect and love of our lives, knowing that God has brought us into this world for His own purpose. So this Christmas, I invite you to have a new regard for the value of your life and know that God will bring to fulfillment the good work begun in you. A Blessed Christmas to you all.
