Merry Christmas from the Province of Our Lady of Consolation to all our friends.
During Christmas Eve Mass at Mount St. Francis in southern Indiana, Minister Provincial Fr. Jim Kent, OFM Conv. spoke of the closeness of the Incarnation, that God became one of us, a human being, born in the most humble circumstances possible.
And despite the storms throughout history, Jesus - Emmanuel, God is with us - remains close to us.
Taking the words we heard tonight from Isaiah: We pray that Jesus, the Wonder Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace, may bring His Peace into the hearts of you and your loved ones, in this beautiful season and throughout the New Year.
