Christmas Appeal

 

Dear Missionary Friend,

Christmas Novena Card-front“For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:15-17)

God so loved us that He gave His only Son for us. How often have we heard those words repeated? Every time we participate in the Mass, we are reminded of this most tremendous gift bestowed on us by our heavenly Father. It was the gift of His Son and through Him, the gift of eternal life.

In this phrase is the true meaning of love. That meaning is giving. There is no love without giving. Without giving, love is just an idea and an idle sentiment.

Very soon, we will again celebrate the greatest gift of love – God’s great gift to us – at Christmas. We’ll decorate our homes and churches and gather together to share the joys of the season. Gifts will be given, and gifts received.

Our new Christmas Novena cards are for you to share with your most dear ones. These Christmas Novena cards each bring with them a special remembrance in our SOLEMN NOVENA OF MASSES to be celebrated in Bethlehem. Click here to see a preview of the Christmas Novena card.

Please list the names of your loved ones you wish to include in our Novena on the enclosed reply card and return it to me. I will make sure your intentions are included in the Novena of Masses in the Holy Land, beginning on Christmas Day. Simply click here to request your card or multiple cards.

“Christmas Day, the birthday of our Blessed Savior! Christmas! Never was there such a word! The mystery of the Incarnation gave us this word. No word can so gather and fix the thought of multitudes and generations as the word Christmas. No word is so personal to us,” wrote our Missionary founder, Father Thomas Judge, C.M.

I know there are so many worthy causes and many worthy individuals who call on your generosity during the season of giving, and we are among them. I humbly ask for your most generous help to honor the Blessed Trinity – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

For 100 years, the Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity served to spread devotion to the Blessed Trinity through our countless Missionary efforts in the United States, Mexico, and Puerto Rico. I have enclosed our brochure. It describes our Missionary spirit and our on-going efforts to help minister to the spiritually abandoned in danger of losing their faith, especially the poor. Your love can reach to the desperate many who need our help and support in bringing the hope and blessings of the Blessed Trinity to those most in need.

Love is giving, and I hope you will live your love by giving generously to support the work of the Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity. I have great faith in you. Can I count on your help during this holiday season?

God has given us many gifts, and certainly, your friendship is a great gift to us. Thank you for being so kind. Please remember to send me the names of the loved ones you wish to remember in our Solemn Novena of Masses in Bethlehem. Click here to list your loved ones in the Christmas Novena or to donate.

May the love of the infant Jesus fill your life with joy at Christmas and throughout the coming year!

With deep gratitude in the Trinity,
