December 8, 2019 – Thoughts by Rev Kev

St. Francis of Assisi sought to awaken the Christ Child in the hearts of the faithful by creating the world’s first Nativity scene. We carry on that wonderful tradition today in our homes and our churches, each glimpse of the humble baby in the manger reawakening a love for the Child Jesus in ourselves, our families, and our communities. You are invited to bring your Wrapped Baby Jesus to have them blessed the weekend of December 14th and 15th.

I would ask that each family wrap your special figure of baby Jesus in a box and label it with a tag clearly marked ———— To: (Your family’s name), From: GOD. The tag is important as it will identify your gift.

I will use my family as an example of how the tag should be written:
From: GOD

During the third Sunday of Advent, “Guadette Sunday” we will bless any of your wrapped Baby Jesus’s that have been placed near the Altar. Following the mass you may take your Blessed wrapped Jesus and let this be the first of the gifts that your family will open on Christmas!
