Caith do phuicin, Glan do lamha.


Sunday Gospel Jesus is presented as The Word. The Word was made flesh and lived among us. This gospel passage also gives us the assurance that, if we come to know Jesus, we will become the children of God. St John Paul II wrote, ‘the mystery of the birth of Jesus that took place over 2000 years ago must be lived today and every day. The Word that found a dwelling place in, and through Mary, comes to knock on our hearts this Christmas and every Christmas’. We are his people, the people with whom Jesus lives. This Christmas season we are invited to open our hearts to him. To accept Jesus means to respond generously to our call to love in ways that radiate God to the world. This is a call to build community so that everyone is cared for and valued. It means being people who take part in the transformation of the world into the Kingdom of God.
