Bishop's Advent Message 2013

Peace be with you!

This is the great message as Advent prepares us to celebrate Christmas.  It is the answer to the longing of our hearts.

Peace among nations - peace within nations - in families - in every human life.

We Christians believe that peace is possible, because God has taken on human flesh to heal our humanity from within.

Christ’s work is not yet complete among us, but it can begin each time someone says Yes to God, like Mary did.
