THE BLESSING OF CHRISTMAS

This past week at my Parish, our moderator of Eucharistic Ministers sent around a little something that one of our Ministers apparently wrote...I thought it worthy to post so all could see and read it.

It's not long and really sort of sums up THE Blessing of Christmas.

God Bless All and a very Blessed Christmas.
Jesus Is Lord!

THE Blessing of Christmas

As this hectic “season” soon will culminate in the birth of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, we need to step back and look at all the wonderful Blessings we have received, not only this year, but throughout our lives.  I know there have been tragedies, disappointments, as well as surprises and joyous things that have happened to us all.  Through it all, we, as Extraordinary Ministers of The Holy Eucharist, have been given a most singular Joy…to offer to our Fellow Parishioners the Body and Blood of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 

All of us have had something or someone in our lives that we couldn’t really understand, but did the chore or helped the person anyway.  God says that if you “do it for the least of My brethren, you do it for Me.”  As Catholics and Christians, this should be a “Given”.  But, as you all know, “life” gets in the way” as our Pastor has said many times.

This little piece has been written to bring forth the Joy and Love of Christmas that so many seem to lose during the Christmas season of parties, shopping, distractions and frustrations.  God has given us the Most Perfect Gift---His Son…We as Extraordinary Ministers of The Holy Eucharist have the Joy of passing that love on to all our family at our Parish each time we say “The Body of Christ”—“The Blood of Christ”

God Bless each one of you for all you do.
