After the many challenges of 2020, we are excited to start preparing to celebrate the miracle, the gift, and the promise of Christmas. Let me be the first to wish Christ’s grace, peace, and hope be with you and your family now and in the days ahead. May His love warm your hearts and fill you with joy!
“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 the greatest gift of all bestowed on us by our heavenly Father. His greatest gift is that of His Son and through Him, the gift of eternal life.
His gift demonstrates the true meaning of love. There is no love without giving. Without giving, love is just an idea, an idle sentiment.
Very soon, we will again celebrate the greatest gift of love – God’s great gift to us – at Christmas. Three Christmas cards portraying the Holy Family set inside an ornament is our gift to you. Click here to see a preview of the Christmas Novena Mass card.
These cards bring with them a special remembrance in our SOLEMN NOVENA OF MASSES celebrated in Bethlehem. Simply scroll down to the bottom of this page or click here to request your card or multiple cards.
Please list the names of your loved ones and intentions on the enclosed reply form and return it to me. I will make sure your loved ones and intentions are included in the Novena of Masses in the Holy Land, beginning on Christmas Day. Click here to list your loved ones in the Christmas Novena or to donate.
I know there are so many worthwhile causes from many organizations that 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.
Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity serve to spread devotion to the Blessed Trinity through our countless missionary efforts in the United States, Mexico, and Puerto Rico. We are steadfast in our on-going efforts to help minister to the spiritually abandoned in danger of losing their faith, especially the poor. Your love can reach out to those who need our help and support. Please continue to partner with us in bringing the hope and blessings of the Blessed Trinity to those most in need.
Love is giving, and I hope you will show your love by giving generously to support the work of 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. Your partnership with us is a great gift. Thank you for being so kind. Please remember to send me the names of the loved ones you wish to acknowledge in our Solemn Novena of Masses in Bethlehem. You as well will be commemorated in our Masses.
May the love of the infant Jesus fill your life with joy at Christmas and throughout the coming year!
With Blessings in the Trinity,
Sister Marie, MSBT
