Dear Corpus Christi,
More joy at Corpus Christi as Felix and Danielle and Rebecca and Anthony were married here last weekend. Please keep them in your prayers as each couple begin their sublime journey in matrimony.
It is my sincere hope that this Christmas will be a time to join together, by whatever means possible, in thanks for the gift of Jesus’ coming into a world so desperate for the love and solidarity He shows to us. On our part, may we all, in the year to come, participate in and foster that same love and companionship to those we know and to those often left unknown; those who, by their own actions, or by society’s prejudices, are left on the margins.
It has been an extraordinary gift to me to have had the unexpected time with this community over the last months. Know of my gratitude and my continuing prayers for each of you and for this precious assembly. Merry Christmas.
