Christmas mass was con-celebrated at Mount St.Thomas.Gave the homily at the mass.Spoke about Christmas being the greatest love story of the world: God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son that everyone who believed in him might be saved.
Mentioned Bishop Sheen's words that we become lovable because God has put His love into our hearts.
Emphasized the need to reflect that love.The words of Pope Benedict XVl at Cologne---about the Magi, coming to Bethlehem guided by the star but returning with the star in their hearts.
Later in the morning, went to Josy's house for a family gathering.
I am deeply thankful to God for giving me this opportunity to enjoy the beauty of Christmas once again in my life.

The first meeting of the Committee for Public Affairs will be held on Dec.19th. Invitations are being sent to the members of the Committee.Hope and pray that the deliberations and discussions will be useful.
Today is the beginning of Advent,2013.The season of Advent is a beautiful time to reflect on the blessings we have received through the presence of Jesus in our life and to offer love and compassion to all those who meet us in daily life in this pilgrimage of life. We often speak of fasts and abstinence during this season of hope and waiting. Following in the footsteps of Pope Francis, living by the thoughts he gives us daily and especially through the words of the new Apostolic Letter, the Joy of the Gospel, we have to use this period of Advent that is just breaking open before us , to reflect the pure graciousness of the Lord who offered peace and happiness to all at his birth.
