As we come back to school after our Christmas break, we reflect on
the fun of family events, great food, and less busy days. However, the
fun and joy of the Christmas season is still not over. Until January 9th, we are in a special liturgical time of the year called the octave of Christmas. We are invited to continue to embrace the joy that the Christ Child brings the world at Christmas time.
As we continue
to celebrate the joy we get from the Christ Child,
make us aware of
the true gifts we have to share with loved ones.
Help us to
extend our capacity for compassion,
so that we may
help those in need.
Thank you for
the gift of the Christ Child
who fills our
lives with love and hope.
