Merry Christmas! Since this is my last column before Christmas, I want to give my Christmas message now. On Thursday we had our first meeting of our parish environmental committee. We are committed to 1) learning more about climate change and pollution, 2) communicating to you and to our wider community what we learn, and 3) reducing our own carbon footprint. Central to all of this is our belief that God created all the aspects of our cosmos out of love and that it all reflects his intelligence, goodness, and beauty. That is a conviction we perhaps share with all theists. But what really gives us the power to carry all of this into action is our belief that the Son of God actually became a physical part of this cosmos in Jesus of Nazareth. This is a belief unique to Christianity itself. And that is what we celebrate this Christmas. Through his conception and birth as a human being, “in Him all things [in the cosmos] hold together.” (Colossians 1:15-20) The world is renewed, in every aspect, and we ourselves should be renewed by this faith. It is the Incarnation of the Son of God in our flesh that lies at the root of what Pope Francis calls the joy of the gospel. “Rejoice! Again I say Rejoice!…The Lord is near.” (Phil 4:4-5) Merry Christmas! Fr. John 4th Sunday of Advent / December 20, 2015 NEW ITEMS IN THE KIOSK!!
