      Sister Lucy's CHRISTMAS MESSAGE


        Sister Mary Lucy Astuto    Dear Reader, may I first of all thank you for taking the time to log onto this excellent website to read solid Catholic articles. May God bless you and I pray you shall continue to read from this wonderful site.

            Our Lady of Medjugorje said that Christmas is her favorite Feast. Isnít that like a mother who looks back on the birth of her baby as a wonderful day?

            How happy she must have been to hold that beautiful Baby in her arms! The cold of that winter night could not have distracted her from beholding what God had wrought.

            What she wanted most of all was to give her Son the hearts of all in the world for He came to save us all. Even on that first Christmas night Our Blessed Mother prayed for all of us.

            I hope you have gone to confession and will give Jesus your heart for Christmas - a good and clean heart. This is what Jesus wants! This is the Christmas present from you that He wants!

            On an old Christmas card I read the following:

            When the Wise Men brought their precious gifts
            The Infant was aware
            That a far more precious gift was in
            The heart of each Wise Man there
            And tenderly He blessed them
            And today may He bless you
            Knowing that in your heart you make
            That Christmas journey, too!

            It is with a grateful heart that I think of you during this Holy Season! May Our Sweet Infant Jesus give you every grace and blessing of which you have need!

            For Christmas I wish to present to Him your heart along with mine. Blessings always!
