Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus,
Each year as the Solemnity of Christ's Birth draws near, I am reminded of what Saint Paul wrote to the Christian
community in Corinth: "though he was rich, [Jesus Christ ] became poor for your sake, so that through his poverty, you
might become rich" (cf. 2Cor.8:9).
Yes, as we kneel before the Manger scene on Christmas Day and beyond, we see before us the poverty which the
Son of God embraced at His birth. He was born in a cattle stable, not in a room at the inn or at His home; lying in a manger
of straw, not in a comfortable bed; wrapped in swaddling clothes, not in warm garments and a blanket.
But the poverty which He embraced was much more than what is so immediately visible. He put aside the riches of
heavenly glory, and instead took on our human nature. As the Letter to the Hebrews reminds us, Jesus became like us in all
things except sin. (cf. Heb. 4:15)).
Why did Jesus Christ, the Son of God, do all this? Out of love for us and for our salvation. He became poor, so that
through His poverty, we might become rich. Rich in what? Rich in the things that really matter – – the things of the heart!
Knowing that our heart longs for the kind of love that truly satisfies and fulfills us, Jesus Christ came to remove
every obstacle that keeps us from experiencing such love – the obstacles of evil, sin, and eternal death. He came to offer us
salvation, God's free act of love, whereby we become His sons and daughters with the promised inheritance of living
forever, sharing His life, in an existence that goes beyond our wildest imaginations, a life of unending peace and joy and
fellowship. When we possess that kind of life, we shall truly become rich and fully alive.
Jesus Christ was born, and eventually suffered, died and rose again on the third day, so that we might find in our
union with Him the fulfillment of our hearts’ deepest longing. He is the source of the kind of love that satisfies the human
heart here in our earthly journey and becomes totally fulfilled in heaven.
Draw near to the manger and see the love of Christ, the love that made Him poor so that we might become truly
rich. And give Him the only thing He desires – love for Him made real in prayer and worship as well as in our daily witness,
and love for others, made real in self-emptying service to others.
I will remember each of you in my prayers and in the Holy Masses, which I shall offer on Christmas Day and
throughout this season of Christmas joy!
Faithfully in the Heart of Christ,
Most Reverend Paul S. Loverde
Bishop of Arlington
In Our Parish
The Parish Office is closed from
12:00 noon - 1:00pm Monday-Friday.
The Legion of Mary, Mother of the Word Incarnate
Presidium, meets in the PAC, St. Joseph Room, on
Thursdays at 7:30pm.
The Thursday morning Bible Study is on break through the
holidays. We will pick up again on Thursday, January 8th in
the Parish Library.
May the Peace and Joy
of the Christ Child be yours
Two years ago, in talking with my parents after the events
of the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, they were sharing
with me some words that a priest at their church said at
Mass the Sunday after the tragedy. He said that this year he
doesn’t want people to have a happy Christmas, or a Merry
Christmas, or even a Happy Holiday. He just wants to wish
them Christmas. If we think about this, he is getting to the
essence of what Christmas is about. He wants them to encounter Christ in Christmas. Christ, come among us as a
man, is a remarkable solidarity that God is sharing with all
of humanity. Christ comes in all of his vulnerability as a
child, one who needs parents to care for him, to love him, to
protect him, and to guide him through infancy and childhood. The God who comes down to earth, unites heaven
and earth as they touch in Jesus. Christ came as a human to
begin the remarkable journey of our Redemption from sin
and to reveal his saving power in the Resurrection. May this
be the Christ whom you meet this Christmas.
This year, instead of sending individual Christmas cards to
all, the parish is making a donation to our Bethany Food
Pantry, that serves the needy of the Manassas area. The
name “Bethlehem” means “House of Bread.” Jesus was
born in a manger, which was the food trough used for feeding animals. Thus, “House of Bread” can be associated with
Jesus, the Bread of Life.
If you are traveling for the holidays, please journey safely.
If you are a visitor to All Saints Church, we welcome you.
On behalf of Fr. Melmer, Fr. Juan, Fr. Mauricio, Fr. Stephen, myself, our deacons, sisters and our parish staff, I
wish you a very blessed and merry Christmas. May you
discover the peace and joy of Christ in this Christmas season.
(A Blessed and Merry) Christmas!

Oraciones para la corona de Adviento
Si usted está configurando una corona de
adviento en su casa este año, aquí hay
algunas oraciones que se podría decir
mientras usted prende las velas. Usted
puede decir esto antes o después de una comida, al
despertar, antes de ir a la cama, o cada vez que usted y
los miembros de su familia se reúnen para orar. Antes
de decir la oración, leer y hablar sobre el evangelio que
escucho en la misa dominical de esa semana.
Tercer Semana: Oh Dios, que enviaste a san J uan
Bautista como voz que clama en el desierto, abre
nuestros oídos para escuchar tu mensaje al encender la
vela de color rosa. Modela nuestras vidas de modo que
se conviertan en un camino recto hacia ti. Haznos
dignos de saludar a tu Hijo cuando Él venga a nosotros.
Por Cristo nuestro Señor.
Cuarta Semana: Oh Dios, que enviaste el ángel
Gabriel para anunciar la buena noticia a María, haznos
fieles a su Palabra de Vida. Deja que nuestros
corazones estén tan llenos de amor por ti que brillen
con la luz de estas cuatro velas. Que vivamos de tal
manera que te agrademos siempre. Por Cristo nuestro
Señor.
