The European Council of Lay Dominican Fraternities pray you and your families have a truly grace-filled and blessed Christmas.
|Brothers and Sisters in Saint Dominic,
“may God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace” (cf 1Cor). The old testament tells us to expect our Saviour, where in Isaiah we read; Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel. (cf Isaiah 1).
We wait with patient hope for the impending arrival of our Lord who brings love, peace and Joy.
May the Child Christ fill your hearts with His love, may you be ever ready to share that salvific love in this world in the way of our holy father Saint Dominic. May we see in those we meet the face of the Child, of Christ and the face of Dominic.
Your Brother Damien
What is Christmas for you?
