Let Us Adore Him

Dear Parishioners and Visitors,

The angel Gabriel appeared to Mary saying, "Do not be afraid, Mary."

The angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream saying, "Do not be afraid to take Mary into your home."

The angel of the Lord appeared to the shepherds and said to them, "Do not be afraid ... "

In the Light who is Christ fear is dispelled. So many new babies have been born to us this past year in our families here at Holy Rosary. There is seldom a week goes by that a baby or two isn't born and, soon after, the daughter or son is baptized into the Light, into Jesus Christ. It may seem that fear and debilitating anxiety could dominate our world, yet it is not to be so. The Light
of New Life is all around us to burn off whatever layers of gnarled decaying strands of sin which both paralyze and enslave us.

These newborn lights which have been added to our Holy Rosary community encouarage us to exult God in all His Wonder in singing, shouting and proclaiming, "Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! and Glory! Glory! Glory!"

Merry Christmas!

- fr. Chris, O.P.
