A Christmas Message from My Heart to Yours

The tragic events in Newtown CT earlier this month
have affected all of us, and certainly those of us
already burdened with grief. 

I know that few of us are in the mood 
to celebrate the holidays. 

My Christmas wish for all of us this year 
is that we become more mindful 
of the precious gift of life that we all share, 
and that we look into our hearts 
for ways that we can demonstrate 
compassion and caring toward our fellow beings, 
human and otherwise. 

We are all instruments of God’s peace:

As we struggle to make sense of this tragedy 
and find some meaning and purpose in our lives, 
may we remember that God is always with us 
in the person of those who walk this Earth with us. 

So much of the help God sends to us 
lies in our willingness 
to reach out and support one another.

Whatever our individual religious or spiritual traditions,
may the peace of the season be with all of us
throughout the coming year.

Let there be peace on Earth,
and let it begin with me.
