Come Let Us Adore Him . . . Come, Behold Him . . .
Born the King of Angels and Love
God bestowed the Gift of His Son Jesus to us. The feast of Christmas reminds us that God is Love. At Christmas, Mary felt this love on the night that our Jesus was born. The shepherds and the Magi, called by God and His angels, searched for Jesus and shared in that same love. This love found at Jesus’ birth, is the same love that stirs in Missionaries today. They are called by God to search for Jesus and share His love. Jesus, for Missionaries, is found in the children most in need.
This love is being shared by Missionaries like Sister Clara and the Sisters serving Saint Anthony Parish in Mohipara, Bangladesh. The Sisters, with your Christmas gift to the Missionary Childhood Association, one of the Societies, can help reach out to 296 poor village children to share their Catholic faith. And with the Sisters’ education and care, these children from Bangladesh and many more in the Missions, will know Jesus and His Love, especially those with disabilities and special needs.
This Christmas season, when you offer $60, about $2 a day for all of Advent, you provide a Religious Sister, like Clara, with the help and materials she needs to serve children.
Behold Him . . . Born the King of Angels and of Love
