Christmas 2016 Message from Monsignor Puleo:
My dear friends in Jesus Christ,
May joy flood your souls, as it did the shepherds of Bethlehem, during this holy season of Christmas 2016!
May each of us go to the manger as did the shepherds to see this marvel and to offer Him the gift of our adoration. Who is this Child in the crib? How is He born? Why is He born? What impact has He had on our lives in years past? Where will He lead us in the new year ahead, 2017?
Who is this child? It is the Messiah promised to Adam, announced by the prophets, and desired by thousands for as many years. Lifting the veil of His fragile humanity we see all the splendors of His divinity.
Born as a miracle child and a rejected child the prophecy states that he is to be born in Bethlehem. Joseph and Mary live in the humble town of Nazareth, but they descend from the royal family of David who lived in Bethlehem of Judea. So they must leave for a long and dangerous trip to fulfill the prophecy.
Mary conceived Jesus without losing her innocence; the angel had promised this and all took place as the angel had announced. Today she gives birth without pain, with an ineffable joy.
Jesus is born, and God sends his angels to the shepherds of Bethlehem to announce the good news – an apparition envelops them and they are seized with great fear, like Moses at the burning bush. Joy follows fear and they hurry to offer the newly arrived Messiah not their fortune but their adoration and their love.
In the place that Joseph and Mary found when there was no room for them at the Inn, Jesus comes into the world as He will leave it. In a manager made of wood splintering His tiny body, some 33 years later His body will feel the splinters of the wooden cross on which He will die.
As the shepherds came to adore Him in His infancy, may we again be inspired to follow their ex-ample. May our adoration lead us from the manager to the cross and beyond with complete trust that God has great things in mind for those who remain faithful.
God bless you and all members of our parish family this Christmas 2016 and throughout 2017!
In Christ Jesus Our Lord,
Rev. Msgr. Edward C. Puleo
