As we begin another liturgical year and come to close our calendar year, we enter the routine of reports and finishing up our responsibilities. We know that at times this is nearly impossible with many interruptions in our schedules. What we can control is how we relate with others and with ourselves, specifically in our relationships with our families, our co-workers and our friends. How we see ourselves in our relationships determines how we reflect the face of Christ. This can be difficult task when it involves forgiveness, the ultimate act of love.
In this Advent season, our prayer as a faith community is that the Peace of the Newborn Christ might remind us of the simplicity we are drawn to in practice, one of stillness and quiet. Therefore our real responsibility lies in our relationship with our Creator in love and expressing this love through the humility of God made man and placed in a manger.
In this December Newsletter we want to share about the life and appreciation we hold for the late Father Alberto Avella, our forthcoming Annual Report, and a very special visit from our friend Losang Samten.
