The light of the Christmas star to you,
The warmth of home and hearth to you,
The cheer and good will of friends to you,
The hope of a childlike heart to you,
The joy of a thousand angels to you,
“The Light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it.” (Jn 1:5)
May the Light of Christ, born to us in Bethleham, shine in your lives overcoming all darkness.
