Dear Friend in the Lord,

Nativity of the Lord:  God enters our world of sin and suffering; as the True Light and Eternal Word that destroys all sin and death.  This is a Divine Gift to mankind that we do not deserve; where we receive God’s Merciful Love.  Ponder on, “What would life be like without this divine gift of Eternal Salvation?  Let our Joy of Christmas be a celebration of our deep gratitude to God.

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 1:1, 9-14

In the beginning was the Word: the Word was with God and the Word was God. The Word was the real light that gives light to everyone; he was coming into the world. He was in the world that had come into being through him, and the world did not recognise him. He came to his own and his own people did not accept him. But to those who did accept him he gave power to become children of God, to those who believed in his name who were born not from human stock or human desire or human will but from God himself.

The Word became flesh, he lived among us, and we saw his glory, the glory that he has from the Father as only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth.
