Fr Albert’s Dec 16 Letter.

16th of December 2018

Greetings in Christ,

Rejoice and be glad, for our salvation is near at hand. This is the message of God for us this third Sunday of Advent called “Gaudete-Rejoice”. This is a powerful message of hope God brings to us, his people – the good news for our salvation. God is coming to save us. The darkness caused by sin is beginning to give way to the light of Christ’s coming.

In the Gospel people were asking John “What shall we do?” John’s answers are very concrete. Share what you have; love your neighbor as you love yourself. Share food and clothing with those in need. Avoid corrupt practices; do not abuse your power. This is already the beginning of living the spirit of Christmas. It is the spirit of joy, love and charity that moves us to share the light of Christ by our acts of charity to our neighbors. This is the spirit of a good steward who joyfully shares their time, talent and treasure in building God’s kingdom of love, justice and peace.

Blessings,

Fr. Albert B. Becher
