God with us


Blessed indeed is this season of Christmas that captivates the whole world in a conspiracy of love, sharing and blessing. In spite of all the glitter, lights and joyous sounds that invade the surroundings could we silence ourselves to hear

 the flutter of the angel’s wings,

the hush of inner expectations,

 the sacred sound of the deepest silence,

Above all the vibrant whisper of the Eternal Word and

begin to see the star in our own hearts.

Emmanuel - God with us is indeed   tenderness for the past, most needed courage for the present andthe saving  hope for the future.

In the NOW... Let us BOW... Make a fervent VOW

That every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal and that every path may lead to the Prince of peace and His lasting peace within and without.

This is our prayer.
