Christmas Wishes from Bishop Paul Bird CSsR

Some of our Christmas celebrations might be bright and noisy – with a crowd at carols by candlelight, for example, or at a Mass on Christmas Eve with children of all ages, or at a large family gathering for Christmas dinner. I hope such bright and noisy times will bring us the good cheer of Christmas.

On the other hand, for some of this Christmas season we might be with a little group of people for a quiet celebration or even be by ourselves for some moments of reflection. May these quiet times be likewise times of Christmas cheer as we remember the birth of Jesus and offer thanks for the gifts the Saviour has brought into our world. A Merry Christmas to us all! God bless us, every one!
