Christmas is a time to experience God’s love, revealed through an infant in a manger. In this little child, who is human and divine, the dawn from on high shines in our darkness, to overcome our sadness, to bring us a joy the world cannot give, and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

 

I invite you to open your heart to the light of Christ. May you know His love and may He fill you with His peace. 

 

+Thomas J. Olmsted
Bishop of Phoenix
