The Annals of Saint Anne
Christmas Is Love!
Christmas began with an unexpected encounter. An angel presented God’s promise. It was the Annunciation. How Mary must have meditated and pondered these extraordinary words in her heart! Christmas is, therefore, first and foremost, a woman, Mary, chosen and blessed by God. A woman who believed in the Word. It was at this moment that she welcomed God and said “Yes.” She trusted Him and offered herself to Him.
Rekindle Our Hope
It seems more and more difficult for us to include the word Happy in our traditional greetings that we exchange as we begin the new year. We hear of so much upheaval and turmoil from war, of the cries of distress of hungry people and those who are homeless and wander the streets, of those in exile, even here in our own cities, that indifference or an attitude of apathy could so easily emerge. It is as if peace were only wishful thinking for which responsibility should fall on others, including heads of state, as well as local and international charitable organizations.
