OUR LADY OF HARTLEY & ST FRANCIS DE SALES, PRAY FOR US.

We continue our celebration to mark the arrival of God in our human Family. We join today the three wise men who came from such a distance to adore Christ, pay him homage.

We learn that we can become worshippers of the true and living God if we search for him who already is searching for us.

The wise men had searched for the truth, and had found that the truth had a name, Jesus. Everything changed as a result. They found that treasure, that precious pearl, and had given up what they had, to give Jesus the best they had. Inspired by the example of the wise men, let us try this year to begin to give to Jesus the best we have.

I thank you once again for the contribution you have given last year to the life of the Parish. I am sure this current year will welcome anew the best of you that you have to give for the Glory of God. I wish you a Happy New Year 2013.
