Christmas Message from National President Fran Lucas
On the Eve of Christmas I think of all of you, Catholic Women’s League members across Canada, and how you are again preparing to welcome and celebrate the arrival of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Our hearts are filled with gladness and joy as we come together with family, friends or in peaceful solitude at this important time in our Catholic life.
To quote Father Peter John Cameron, O.P., in The Magnificat Advent Companion, page 53:
May your presence, Prince of Peace, bless the world with peace, the poor with care and prosperity, the despairing with hope and confidence, the grieving with comfort and gladness, the oppressed with freedom and deliverance, the suffering with solace and relief. Loving Jesus, you are the only real joy of every human heart. I place my trust in you.
May we all know that trust which gives us eternal hope.
May the peace of Christ and the graces of God be with you this Christmas and throughout the coming New Year!
